Kids 8-17 Fly Free - Young Eagles Program

Kids 8-17 Fly Free! An Invitation from EAA Chapter 414 Lake County, IL
FLIER with Information

The Young Eagles program was started 20 years ago by the Experimental Aircraft Association both as a way to spark children’s interest in flight and as a way to renew interest in science and technology. To date, the Young Eagles program has given more than 1.8 million youngsters an opportunity to experience the beauty and exhilaration of flying first hand. The events are hosted and run by volunteers from the local EAA chapters and flight time, fuel, materials and most importantly flight time is donated by local chapter members so Young Eagles flights are free of charge.
