YE Flight Description
We are currently FULLY booked for our Young Eagles flights at Airport Day. We will be adding additional slots depending on pilot availability as we get closer to the event. Please join the waitlist to be notified when we and if we will be opening more slots. BUT DON'T WORRY! If you don't get a confirmed slot then arrive at Airport Day and enjoy all there is to do. We will start calling Young Eagles for their first free airplane ride throughout the day as slots open up. Meet your Pilot The pilots who participate in the Young Eagles program are local members of EAA who are volunteering their time and aircraft to make your flight possible. Each Young Eagles pilot is certificated with the Federal Aviation Administration or Transport Canada. Flights are conducted according to federal regulations and no aerobatic maneuvers will be performed. What will my pre-flight be like? First of all, your pilot will explain what you will see and do. This may include explaining how airplanes work, looking at an aeronautical chart (or map), and describing the interior of the airplane, including the instrument panel. Then comes the fun part: you get to go flying! Safety Reminders Safety is always top priority when it comes to aviation. Listen and follow instructions given by your pilot, stay away from the propellers, and stay with your pilot or ground crew at all times. What will my flight be like? You will spend about 15 to 20 minutes in the air and follow the basic steps in the flight pattern. You will experience the awesome feeling of flight that many people only dream about. Many people remember this experience for the rest of their lives. You will too!
