The Eagle Flights program was first launched at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in 2012. EAA Eagle Flights draws strength thru our EAA members and helps expose adults to aviation and guides them toward whatever engagement fits their lifestyle.
We hope that an Eagle Flight experience helps move them toward becoming a pilot, but most importantly, we want to nurture their interest in aviation and invite them to join our community of aviators. Some of us fly, and some of us participate in other ways, but we are all part of the same amazing community.
We encourage you to take someone flying and help him or her understand your passion for aviation and EAA. By working together we can help preserve the joys of flight for future generations.
The primary goal of EAA’s Eagle Flights is to grow participation in aviation. In order to achieve this goal, the program aims to:
Create new pilots and re-activate lapsed pilots by developing and supporting clear pathways that ignite and nurture interest in flying.
Facilitate the sharing of knowledge, information, and resources among Eagle Flights mentors, prospective pilots, EAA chapters, and the larger aviation community.Facilitate the sharing of knowledge, information, and resources among Eagle Flights mentors, prospective pilots, EAA chapters, and the larger aviation community.
Strengthen EAA’s position as the local access point to aviation by empowering and equipping our members with information and resources to share
The Spirit of Aviation with others.
Continue building on the sense of belonging that our EAA community is founded upon.
