Registration: 9am - Noon



Please join us  July 9, 2022 for our next event.

All flights are determined by the weather conditions and availability of pilots. You may sign up at Registration forms are also available the morning of the Rally. A parent or legal guardian must sign the form before the child can fly. If a parent or legal guardian is not able to attend, please sign up on line.

For more information, click on the Young Eagles link in the menu.

Please note: If you sign up online, you will be signing up for a time slot. Please arrive as early as you can to 9am. Flights are still first, come, first fly. This is due to many factors out of our control such as weather, pilot availability, etc. Smartt field is located about a mile from the Mississippi river so sometimes we have to delay flights do to fog. In the summer, the air can get bumpy later in the morning because of heat and we may have to close early. If the winds pick up, we may have to cancel flights. We really want your kids to fly, so even if you sign up for a late morning time slot, please come as close to 9am as you can so we can get the flight in.
