Get a FREE Flight!
Have you ever wondered what it's like to fly? Young Eagles don't have to imagine what flying is like. If you are between 8 and 17 years old, the EAA Young Eagles programs wants to offer you the chance of a lifetime. Turn your dreams into reality on a free Young Eagles flight and become one of over 1.6 million Young Eagles! Each Young Eagle will become part of a special group of people who have shared in a common experience -- the thrill of flying! You will have the chance to actually fly in an airplane and look at the world below you. You are invited to take the skies and become a Young Eagle! This is a true passion at Chapter 190.
What Do I Need To Do?
Contact our EAA 190 Young Eagle Coordinator (Aaron Wypyszynski) by email. Aaron will coordinate your demonstration flight and let you know when to come out to the Airport. Additionally, Aaron and our volunteer pilots are at Moontown airport every third Saturday of the month, during the fly-in breakfast, to give Young Eagle flights so feel free to show up around 8:30 am for your flight. You can ask your volunteer pilot as many questions as you like before, during and after your flight. In doing so, you’ll learn more about airplanes and the principles of flight. That’s all there is to it. It’s really that simple! Each Young Eagle will receive a certificate after their flight and their name will go in the Worlds Largest Logbook on display at EAA National.
