Young Eagles Program Free Airplane Rides

EAA Chapter 47 Young Eagles Helps Young People Into The Air

Have you ever wondered what it's like to fly?
Young Eagles don't have to imagine what flying is like. Each Young Eagle will become part of a special group of people who have shared in a common experience — the thrill of flying! You will have the chance to actually fly in an airplane and look at the world below you. You are invited to take to the skies and become a Young Eagle!

What do I have to do to become a Young Eagle?

1. Be age 8 through 17
2. You and your parents or guardian should print and complete this registration form before your flight.
3. Print and Complete this city of St. Petersburg release form before your flight.
4. Bring these completed forms to your EAA pilot who will prepare you for your demonstration flight.
You can ask your volunteer pilot as many questions as you like. In doing so, you'll learn more about airplanes and the principles of flight. That's all there is to it. It's really that simple!
Apply for a flight training scholarship
Scholarships are an important part of the new Young Eagles Flight Plan, but did you know that completing Sporty's Complete Pilot Training program can make you eligible for funds to be used for flight training? (Read more...)

Young Eagles can earn free Flight Lesson!
Building on the success of the Sporty's Complete Pilot Training Course offered to Young Eagles after their flight, EAA recently introduced a new program to provide a free first flight lesson. The flight lesson is available to any Young Eagle who completes the first part of the Sporty's course. Once a child reaches that milestone EAA will contact them and issue a voucher good at most flight schools and with independent CFIs. You can read more here.

Over 3,000 Young Eagles Have Taken the Next Step Toward Becoming a Pilot
If you've flown as a Young Eagle and haven't started the Sporty's Complete Pilot Training Course, what are you waiting for? Exciting new free benefits await those Young Eagles who complete the Sporty's course including flight training scholarships and more.
