Flying Start is an EAA program for chapters to use to reach out to the local community, and provides a pathway to invite interested people to the world of flight. Through Flying Start, chapters and chapter members will break down the barriers commonly encountered by the non-aviation community that prevent people from becoming a pilot. Flying Start participants will walk away from the event with an, “I can do this” point of view, a clear understanding of how flying can fit into their lives, and a good idea of what they can do with this avocation..
