Calling all Young Eagles...
Ever wondered what your neighborhood looks like from
the sky? Or maybe you’re curious how airplanes even
work. You might even dream about being a pilot. If
you’re nodding your head “Yes” and are between the
ages of 8 and 17, you’re ready to take a free Young
Eagles flight and see what real pilots do on the
ground, and in the air. Area young people ages 8-17
will have a chance to take to the skies on Saturday
October 1st, as Experimental Aircraft Association
Chapter 1361 hosts a Young Eagles Flight Rally at
Stead Airport, flown by volunteer local pilots. All
participants need to have a parent or guardian signed
and completed Registration. For more information and
to register go to: youngeaglesday.org/?yedetail&event=7wJQ4Vbub
The rally is part of the EAA Young Eagles Program,
created to interest young people in aviation. Since
the program was launched in 1992, Volunteer EAA pilots
have flown more than 2 million young people who reside
in more than 90 countries. Pilots at the event will
talk about their airplanes, allowing young people to
discover how airplanes work and how pilots ensure
safety is the prime concern before every flight.
Following the flight, each young person will receive a
certificate making them an official Young Eagle. In
addition to the Certificate, the new Young Eagle will
be given a Logbook with an access code for a complete
free online Flight Training course offered by Sporty’s
Pilot Shop. Those attending the flight rally on
October 1st are asked to come to the Stead Terminal,
starting at 9:00AM to register for their flight. Allow
two hours in case of delays. In event of a weather
delay, the event will be rescheduled for October 8th.
