EAA’s Eagle Flights® is a free introductory flight experience and informal mentoring program designed to welcome and encourage adults who want to discover flying, but don’t know how or where to take that first step. It begins with a hands-on introduction, where you’ll fly with a local EAA-member pilot who will let you follow along at the controls of the airplane to get a feel for what being a pilot is all about.
After the flight, he or she can help you learn more about how to get involved in your local aviation community, including the next steps you can take on the path to becoming a pilot.
The best part? The whole experience is free. No sales. No pressure. Just a whole lot of fun and education with a big take-home point: Your dream of flying is a lot closer than you think.

With the recent easing of pandemic restrictions, Chapter 501 has lengthened its list of pilots now willing to resume volunteering for Eagle Flights. The list of candidates for Eagles Flights is also growing, each candidate waiting for the day ahead when pilot and candidate each have time available to go flying and there is good weather.
