Young Eagles


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.

Since 1992, more than 1.3 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 41,000 volunteer pilots.

At Chapter 31, we’ve flown over two hundred kids so far, and we look forward to flying more!  Most of our YE flights take place during our annual Young Eagles/Fly-in, typically in September or August.

We can also provide rides anytime during the year to interested kids and parents, weather permitting.  For more information, contact us at
