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.

FLYING START is a special one day event at the local EAA chapter which introduces interested adults to the flying experience. It includes some classroom introduction & instruction with question & answers and then followed by a hands-on flight. EAA 517 held one in 2019 and will be having more in the future. We are gathering names to contact when we hold another Flying Start event.
