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.

On the 3rd Saturday of each month, EAA Chapter 301 provides free rides to youth at the Centennial Airport from the Exploration of Flight ramp. Many of the youth at these rallies go on to participate in Exploration of Flight activities, as the Young Eagles are invited to various youth aviation groups in the area.
