4th Annual Young Eagles Rally

Photo Album

August 18, 2007

The Experimental Aircraft Association (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 airplane.  These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers. The Young Eagles program surpassed the goal to fly 1 million youngsters by December 17, 2003, the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers first flight. The new goal is to fly 100,000 Young Eagles during the calendar year.  In 1992, when the program was initiated, 1,802 volunteer pilots flew 7,458 youngsters.  We are now rapidly approaching the 1.3 million Young Eagle mark and this summer we celebrate the 15th anniversary of the program. To-date over 40,000 volunteer pilots and an estimated 55,000 ground volunteers have introduced youngsters to the magic of flight.  Also, volunteer pilots associated with EAA Chapter 740 at Lebanon Airport have flown over 1,000 youngsters.
