Young Eagles demonstration rides last approximately 10 to 15 minutes, and are provided free of charge to children 8 to 17 years of age to provide a meaningful flight experience in a General Aviation aircraft.
A parent or guardian must accompany the child to the airport to be eligible.
These flights are provided courtesy of local EAA members. Additional information on this program can be found at www.YoungEagles.org
Through the generous volunteer efforts of local EAA pilots at the 2014 Fly-In, 127 children were provided demonstration rides under the Young Eagles Program. The process involved:
1) Registering your child at one of the available laptop computers at the event. 2) Waiting to be boarded on an aircraft for their flight.
Weather permitting, rides will begin at approximately 9am. Please understand that these rides are provided by local pilots donating their time, aircraft use, and fuel. If rider turnout exceeds pilot capacity, every attempt will be made to reschedule rides at a later date.
If you missed the previous event, the photos below should help motivate you to be there for the next Forest Lake Airport Fly-In on August 15, 2015.
