To our regular attendees: As our program's popularity has grown, we've been struggling to fly all those that attend. We're delighted you enjoy Young Eagles enough to come back. We also have many kids coming for their first time. We'll do our best to fly all those that show up, however, we do have the option of giving priority to first-time flyers. We appreciate your understanding. Also, if there is a large backlog, we may close registrations at any time to be able to fly those already signed up.
 
 What will the flight be like...


The biggest question on your mind might be about the actual flight. So, what should you expect?

First of all, your pilot will explain what will happen during the flight. This might include talking about the airplane; completing a "walk around" preflight inspection of the airplane; reviewing an aeronautical chart (or map); and identifying the parts that control the airplane.

When you are ready to enter the aircraft, your pilot will help you buckle your seat belt and describe the interior, including the instrument panel. You'll likely put on a headset that will help you to talk and hear the others in the aircraft over the wind and engine noise.

Once in the air, you’ll see the earth and sky in a new and exciting way. You’ll experience the wonderful freedom of flight that many people only dream about. You might be surprised at how big things now look pretty small, or you'll notice things that you never knew were there. If you are like most Young Eagles, you’ll remember this experience for the rest of your life.

Young Eagle flights usually last between 15 and 20 minutes. Once back on the ground, there will be additional time for you to ask questions about the flight. Your pilot will be happy to tell you more about flying and their particular airplane. You’ll also receive an official Young Eagles certificate, which is signed by your personal pilot and our Chairman, Sean D. Tucker, one of the very top airshow pilots in the world.

We look forward to adding your name to the ever-growing list of EAA Young Eagles!

 The Program


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 aircraft. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.

Since 1992, more than 2 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 over 45,000 volunteer pilots

If you are not in the Kansas City area to attend one of our events, please search for a Young Eagles Coordinator in your area here:  find a pilot
 
We hope you enjoy a Young Eagles introduction to the exciting world of aviation. Make sure you come back to visit this web site after your flight to continue exploring the wonderful world of aviation! Also, be sure to visit the World's Largest Logbook to search for your name. Please allow about three weeks after your flight. search Logbook

A new milestone (million-stone?) was reached in July, 2016. Harrison Ford, former chairman of Young Eagles for many years, flew Young Eagle #2,000,000 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, during AirVenture, the annual convention and airshow. The current chairman, Sean D. Tucker, flew Young Eagle #2,000,001 to start us on a new million-flown.
