About the Program:
The mission of the EAA Young Eagles Program is to provide a meaningful flight experience – free of charge –
in a general aviation aircraft for young people (primarily between the ages of 8 and 17). Flights are provided
by EAA members world wide. The program was launched in 1992 and has flown over 2 million kids.
It’s the only program of its kind, with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation.
EAA Chapter 36 is proud to be a part of this exciting program.
