While searching the web for more exciting things to do with my son, I discovered the EAA Young Eagles Program. A program that started in 1992 that provides kids ages 8-17 an opportunity to fly in a general aviation plane for FREE.
It is easy to book a fly and when the kids get there this is what they experience:
It is pretty easy to get your kids to experience this. Go to the Young Eagles website, find the closest coordinator, call, schedule the flight and be ready to take-off.
Enjoy your flight!
