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.

EAA Chapter 772 is active in flying Young Eagles year round, and we also hold an annual Young Eagles Day at our airport in Ludington, MI., KLDM. It is normally held on a Saturday just after the July 4th weekend. Typically we fly from 100 to over 200 Young Eagles on this day.
In addition to KLDM, we have an associated group at nearby Shelby Airport, C04. They also have a Young Eagles day, typically in September.
There are a LOT of Young Eagles photographs in the section "Frank's Photos-Videos".
