Young Eagles

Educational Support – EAA Young Eagles

Young Eagles Program - Wings Museum

The Young Eagles program was developed by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) to introduce children, ages 8 to 17 to the exciting world of flight. The Young Eagles program consists of EAA member pilots who volunteer their time and aircraft to give free introductions to flight to youth.

Wings Over the Rockies Museum at the Exploration of Flight facility proudly hosts EAA Chapter 301 Young Eagle Rallies. On the 3rd Saturday of each month, EAA Chapter 301 provides free rides to youth, many of which go on to participate in Exploration of Flight aerospace activities, as well as various other youth aviation groups in the area.

To date, Wing over the Rockies has hosted over 1,777 Young Eagle kids, many who have gone onto amazing careers in aviation.
