Young Eagles


The 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.




What  is Young Eagles?


Since 1992, more than 1.6 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight through the program. Young Eagles have been registered in more than 90 different countries and have been flown by more than 42,000 volunteer pilots.


Each month, EAA Chapter 723 offers free flights to youth, our Young Eagles ages 8 through 17, weather permitting. Reservations for the flights can be made here using the Pre-Registration form.


Reservations are taken the week preceding the first Saturday of the month.

Your Young Eagle’s Flight


Please print out both pages of the Registration Form  (printed back to back on one page if possible) and fill it out before arriving at the airport.  This will help make the Young Eagles experience go smoothly.  Please print and fill out one form for each Young Eagle.


So that your Young Eagle isn’t disappointed, please pre-register your Young Eagle with us using the Pre-Registration form provided .  (The purpose of this form is so that we know how many Young Eagles to expect so that we have enough planes and pilots on hand.)
