Young Eagles

2022 - Get ready!

The EAA Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8 - 17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.

Since 1992, more than 1.8 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight through the program. Young Eagles have been registered in more than 90 different countries and have been flown by more than 42,000 volunteer pilots

Our chapter typically organizes between 4 to 5 Young Eagle Rallies per year. We start in May and end in November. Weather can sometimes play into having to cancel or rescheduling a YE rally, please be sure to visit this site or our Facebook page for up to date information for each rally and don’t forget to scroll down for an updated YE 2022 calendar.
