EAA Chapter 461

Airport ActivitiesThe EAA Young Eagles program was started in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8 – 17, an opportunity to experience the joy of flight in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.

This is an amazing way to start flying at a young age! We are proud to say that we work with EAA Chapter 461!
