The EAA Chapter 535, from Menominee, MI is providing free airplane rides for kids 8-17 years old in a program dubbed EAA Young Eagles.
So what’s a Young Eagles Flight like?
On the ground:
Your pilot explains what will happen during the flight. This might include talking about the airplane, reviewing an aeronautical chart (or map), identifying reference points during the flight, completing a careful “walk around” preflight inspection of the airplane, and identifying the parts that control the airplane.
Just before take-off:
Your pilot helps you buckle your seat belt and describes the interior of the airplane, including the instrument panel.
In the air:
You have a whole new view of the earth and sky. And, if you want, your pilot may let you take the controls! The flight lasts between 15 and 20 minutes, but if you’re like most Young Eagles, you’ll remember this experience for the rest of your life.
Enjoy grilled brats, burgers and hotdogs, and a variety of soda… free to any Young Eagle and their parents.
