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.

At the Local Level:
Chapter 36 has flown over 6,700 kids.
Flights usually last 15-20 minutes, and are normally available between 9 AM and 1 PM during Young Eagles events. *Weather Permitting*
If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering at future events, please contact our Young Eagles Coordinator Curtis Berry.
There are no more Chapter 36 Young Eagles events scheduled for 2021. Dates for the 2022 events TBD.
