Young Eagle Flights

The EAA Young Eagles program has dedicated 25 years to giving youth ages 8–17 their first free ride in an airplane. It’s the only program of its kind, with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation. For some, its their first flight in a small plane. For others, it may be their first time airborne.

Today, the Young Eagles program has flown over 2 million kids with the help of EAA’s network of volunteer pilots and ground volunteers around the country.
