Founded in 1992, the Young Eagles program is dedicated to giving youth ages 8–17, 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.
It’s the only program of its kind, with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation.
Today, the Young Eagles program has flown over 2 million kids.

The covidvirus pandemic "gathering" restrictions forced us to cancel all four of our planned 2020 Young Eagles event dates. At our June 2021 Chapter meeting we set September 12 and October 18 (both Sundays) as our first Young Eagles events of 2021. See our main web page at www.eaa501.org for additional information. The planning for these events is in progress.
