Young Eagles


EAA Young Eagles

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.

Today, the Young Eagles program has flown over 2 million young people.

Chapter 72 is an active participant in the program, having flown over 3,000 Young Eagles.

Monthly rallies are scheduled usually for a Saturday morning to fly up to 50 Young Eagles with EAA pilots and FAA licensed airplanes.
