Young Eagles Flights



Here's how your flight will go:

  1. One The Ground
    Your pilot explains what will happen during the flight. You may talk about the airplane, review an aeronautical chart (or map), and complete a careful "walk-around" preflight inspection of the airplane.

  2. Just Before Takeoff
    Your pilot explains the interior of the airplane, including the operation of the aircraft door, safety belts, and instrument panel.

  3. In the Air
    The flight lasts between 15-20 minutes. And, if you want, your pilot may let you take the controls!

  4. Back on the Ground
    There's more time for you to ask questions about the flight. Your pilot is happy to tell you more about flying their particular plane.

  5. After The Flight
    After the flight is completed, the pilot will issue your child the official Young Eagles logbook and certificate. The pilot then returns the registration form to the Young Eagles office, where the flight will be officially entered in the World's Largest Logbook. EAA will send our child follow-up information about their FREE Online Ground School, details regarding other youth aviation programs, and information about EAA Scholarships.
