Young Eagles

The EAA started the young eagles program with the goal of providing free introductory airplane rides to 1,000,000 kids by 2000.  The goal was met, and the program has continued.  Through the thoughtful donation of airplane, fuel, and time, EAA volunteers continue to give young people an introduction to general aviation.

Chapter 1327 organized a young eagles rally in conjunction with a boy scout camporee at Mid State airport on May 30, 2009.  The event was a big success with 94 scouts becoming young eagles.  Special thanks to Steve, Ron, Randy, Bob, Francois, Don, and Rex.
