Young Eagles Day, 2021 -Still Uncertain
The chapter will not be holding a Young Eagles Day event on June 12, International Young Eagles Day. Pilots are always welcome to fly kids on an individual basis. Paperwork is available in the Chapter hangar or by contacting Gary Baker. It is possible that we might host a small event in late summer or early fall.Nationally, the Young Eagles program has flown more than 2.2 million kids with the help of EAA’s network of volunteer pilots and ground volunteers, including the members of Chapter 846. Each year we fly young people age 8-17 at Wadsworth Airport. Each child will attend a short ground school, followed by a free airplane ride with a qualified pilot. A parent or guardian must be present
Please be watching here for a rescheduled date for Young Eagles Day.
