What is the EAA Young Eagles Program?
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, including volunteer pilot members of EAA Chapter 646.
Since 1992, more than 1.6 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 42,000 volunteer pilots.
For the Roanoke EAA Chapter 646, some 57 pilots have flown over 4,000 Young Eagles. If interested in a Young Eagles flight, contact our Chapter Secretary, Lauren West at firstname.lastname@example.org or Treasurer, Brian McGinnis at email@example.com
or our Young Eagles coordinator Dave Stocker at Stocker.DG@cox.net
