The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is an organization of members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds, dedicated to preserving flying of any kind. The EAA Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8 thru 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.  

For more information on Young Eagle Flights contact EAA 1073 Young Eagles Coordinator Vince Bruno at 530-583-5766, or visit: http://www.eaa1073.org or Young Eagles Program
