Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)
Young Eagles

The Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 by the EAA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  Their mission is to provide flight experience ― free of charge ― in a general aviation aircraft for young people (primarily between 8-17).

Young Eagle flights have been conducted in every state in America, each province in Canada, and in more than 90 other countries. The flights have also been safely conducted in nearly every type of general aviation aircraft, from light planes to corporate jets and everything in between.


Your child can join the ranks of Young Eagles and see their world from a while new perspective.

Actor Harrison Ford, a license pilot since 1996, is a former chairman of the EAA.  "Young Eagles gives kids a view of the world they've never seen before," Ford said.  "Each Young Eagle flight is an opportunity to excite kids by sharing a passion for flight and to show them that they, too, can learn the skills to participate in aviation."
