Terre Haute, Indiana
Ever wondered what your neighborhood looks like from the sky? Or maybe you're curious how airplanes even work. You might even dream about being a pilot.
If you're nodding your head "Yes" and are between the ages of 8 and 17, you're ready to take a free Young Eagles flight and see what real pilots do on the ground and in the air. Since 1992, more than 1.9 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight from EAA's network of volunteer pilots. For many, it was the start of their journey to becoming a pilot, aircraft mechanic, air traffic controller, or many other career possibilities.
Chapter 83 sponsors several Young Eagles flights every year. Cost-free flights include a basic introduction to how aircraft work, safety precautions and time with the volunteer pilot before and after the flights. Our Chapter Young Eagle Coordinators work to arrange group flights for school classes and other groups, as well as flights for individual students.Click HERE to contact our Young Eagle coordinators
