All youth ages 8–17 have an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers. Bring your daughter, son, niece, nephew, grandchild, any youth ages 8-17 and we will introduce them, up close and personal, to aviation.

Participants will receive a certificate recognizing their completion of a Young Eagles experience, their first log book, a free Student Membership in the EAA, an opportunity to take the Sporty's online Learn to Fly Course, take a free first flight lesson, and apply for training scholarships.

It's like Young Eagles for adults! If you have a family member, a friend, or even a cranky neighbor who you know harbors an interest in aviation, invite them to Chapter 35's first Flying Start event. Totally free, participants will experience a Young Eagles style event that culminates in a fifteen minute local flight.

This is shaping up to be a fantastic Chapter event and to insure that it is, please come join us as a volunteer. We need folks for various ground and pilot jobs. Also, if you are interested in displaying your aircraft, RC aircraft, models, or building project, we would be excited to have you too.

To volunteer, display an aircraft, or any other questions; please contact Paul Wurster at: paul.wurster@eaa35.org .

Young Eagles News

If you need proof of the potential of our Young Eagles program then look no further than eighteen year old Jacqueline Campos.

Jacqueline visited us at our August 14, 2021 Chapter Gathering to share with us the news that she recently earned her Private Pilot Certificate. That’s right folks, at age eighteen Jacqueline is a legit FAA certified Private Pilot. But let’s back up a little…  on September 19, 2020, Jacqueline experienced a Young Eagles flight with Charlie Brame and over the next eleven months she graduated from the SAISD’s Young Women’s Leadership Academy high school program, she earned entrance to the University of Texas at Austin, and she was awarded a full scholarship by the U.S. Air Force to attend an eight week accelerated private pilot training course at Indiana Wesleyan University. She reminds me of another accomplished aviator, Jacqueline Cochran.

Congratulations to Jacqueline for graduating high school, for gaining admittance to The University of Texas, and for becoming a certificated Private Pilot. Also, a hearty well-done to Charlie Brame for what must have been a memorable Young Eagles flight.
