The EAA Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give young people, ages 8 - 17, the chance to fly in a general aviation airplane. More than 1.9 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight through the program. Young Eagles have been registered in more than 100 different countries and have been flown by more than 42,000 volunteer pilots.
Chapter 227 pilots have volunteered their time and aircraft to participate as Young Eagle Flight Leaders and have flown over 2000 young people. Not only will you fly for free, you will go through a short ground school, receive your own Logbook and your name will be entered in the World’s Largest Logbook.
