Free airplane rides for young
people ages 8 - 17
What it is:
Aircraft Associationís Young Eagles program was created to welcome
young people to the world of aviation. Its mission is to provide a
safe and meaningful flight experience to young people, ages 8 to
17. Each Young Eagle will experience the exhilaration of flight
with a dedicated pilot who donates his airplane and time to
provide these orientation rides. Check out
