Young Eagles

Get ready!

The EAA Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, 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.

More than 2.4 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight through the program. Young Eagles have been registered in more than 90 different countries and have been flown by more than 42,000 volunteer pilots

Our chapter typically organizes between 4 to 5 Special Event Young Eagle Rallies per year. We start in May and end in November. Weather can sometimes play into having to cancel or rescheduling a YE rally, please be sure to visit this site or our Facebook page for up to date information for each rally and don’t forget to scroll down for an updated YE calendar.
