POTENTIAL YOUNG EAGLES, PARENTS AND GROUP LEADERS: Our mission is to provide a meaningful flight experience - free of charge - in a general aviation aircraft for young people (primarily between the ages of 8 and 17; written parental permission is required). If you have someone in that age group who would benefit from a flight experience, visit http://www.youngeagles.org/parents/ for more information. Download the Young Eagles Registration Form (in .pdf format) here, print it as a double-sided single-sheet document, fill it out, and contact Bob McDaniel via e-mail at dusterpilot@charter.net or phone at 618-530-0805 for future flight opportunities.

Hear from past Young Eagles who are now aviation professionals in a short video by clicking here.

If you're over 17, we have a program for you, too. See http://www.eaa.org/eagleflights/ for program information and use the contact information above to arrange a flight.



REGISTRATION IS SET UP AND READY TO GO
