The Young Eagles program, previously chaired by actor and pilot Harrison Ford, was established in 1992 and is a significant part of EAA, the world’s largest recreational flying organization. In the last 10 years, more than 35,000 EAA members have volunteered their time and aircraft to provide free Young Eagles flights to over one million kids! For more information, check out the national Young Eagles website: www.youngeagles.org.
The Ocean State Aviators will be offering flights for any and all kids between the age of 8 and 17. The only requirement is that your son or daughter is ready to experience the wonderful world of aviation. Participants will learn the proper way to inspect an aircraft before flight, proper runway and taxi proceedures, and the importance of radio communications. Then they will be introduced to an FAA licensed pilot volunteer and weather permitting take them for a short flight. Pre-registration is required, and kids names will be distributed to our chapter pilots. After receiving your childs name, it will be forwarded to your pilot who will then contact you for a flight time.
