Regardless of be in a factory certified or amateur built airplane, the magic of flying is something we love to share
Young Eagles is a program created by the US Experimental Aircraft Association designed to give children between the ages of 8 to 17 an opportunity to experience flight in a general aviation airplane while educating them about aviation. The program is offered free of charge with costs covered by the volunteers. It was launched in 1992 and, by 2016, has flown more than 2 million children in 90 countries.
Our EAA Chapter typically hosts two flight rallies per year, one at our home base of Kingman Airport and one at our neighboring Laughlin-Bullhead International Airport. Contact us or visit our Facebook page for scheduled events.
Young Eagle flights are conducted free of charge by our volunteer pilots and staff. We do welcome corporate and private donations but participants are never asked for payment.
Flights are open to children and teenagers between 8 and 17. A parent or legal guardian must complete and sign the registration form prior to any flights.
Our regular chapter meetings are typically held on the first Saturday of each month in the Don Downey Memorial / EAA 765 Hangar at 9:00 am. We occasionally change the date for holidays or other special events.
