EAA EAGLE FLIGHTS

You Want to Fly

We understand that better than just about anyone. We love to fly, and we love to share the experience. Let us help you take that first step by setting you up with an introductory flight, free-of-charge. 

More Information on Eagle Flights

To help clarify the purpose and intent of the Eagle Flights program, here are the answers to some of the most common questions we've received.

What is Eagle Flights all about?
The Eagle Flights program is about sharing a hands-on flight experience with an adult who has already expressed an interest in aviation. It is not a program for adults to simply get an airplane ride during a Young Eagles rally. Eagle Flights gives you the resources and organizational support to share the fun of flying with friends, family members, and co-workers - something many of our members already do. EAA chapters should view this program as an opportunity to invite new participants into their local aviation community.

How is this program different from Young Eagles?
The Eagle Flights program focuses on introductory flight experiences for adults, which includes offering them support and mentorship after the flight to help them achieve their dream of becoming a pilot. As with Young Eagles, the success of Eagle Flights is up to us as volunteer pilots, chapter leaders, and field representatives. With that said, Young Eagles and Eagle Flights will remain two separate programs and you do not have to participate in Eagle Flights to participate in Young Eagles.

Will Eagle Flights be handled like Young Eagles rallies?
No. With Eagle Flights we want to emphasize quality over quantity. Some chapters may choose to organize Eagle Flights rallies. However, we envision this program as a one-to-one, hands-on experience for the Eagle including extensive pre-flight, in-flight, and post-flight counseling. If the parent or legal guardian of a Young Eagle requests a flight during a rally, we recommend arranging a time outside of the rally to conduct an Eagle Flight.

Who "qualifies" for an Eagle Flight?
Any person 18 years of age or older who has expressed an interest in learning to fly. Adults who contact EAA about an Eagle Flight are asked some questions about their aviation interest to help us determine if they are serious about pilot certification. If you are contacted directly by someone in your area regarding an Eagle Flight, we encourage you to do the same. You may want to consider inviting them to be a part of your chapter before scheduling an Eagle Flight.

What are the pilot requirements?
If you're qualified as a Young Eagles pilot, you're automatically qualified to fly Eagle Flights. The requirements are the same. Participating in an Eagle Flight is something any EAA member can do. You don't need to wait for a scheduled Eagle Flights event. The complete list of pilot requirements is included in the Eagle Flights Pilot Guidelines.

Do I need a separate registration form for Eagle Flights, or can I use my Young Eagles form?
You will need to complete a separate registration form prior to conducting each Eagle Flight. You cannot use the Young Eagles form. You can order Eagle Flights registrations forms on the website or by calling 1-800-557-2376.

Is the insurance coverage the same as Young Eagles?
Yes. Current EAA members participating in the Eagle Flights program are eligible for up to $1 million passenger liability insurance coverage, if they carry a minimum of $100,000 per seat liability insurance. As with Young Eagles, this coverage is in place automatically; no additional forms are required.

What do Eagle Flights participants receive?
Eagle Flights participants will receive a free, six-month EAA membership after the completed Eagle Flights registration form is received by the Eagle Flights Office. We are currently working with several aviation companies to develop additional flight training resources and benefits that will help Eagles along their path to joining our community of aviators.

Will Eagles receive a certificate or logbook?
No. At this time we will not be issuing a certificate or logbook after their Eagle Flight. However, we recommend that participating pilots refer them to an FBO (or online) to purchase a logbook prior to their training.

How do I order Eagle Flights materials?
Registration forms (brochure included), pilot guidelines, and promotional rack cards can be ordered on the website or by calling 1-800-557-2376.

If you have any additional questions about EAA Eagle Flights, feel free to e-mail EagleFlights@eaa.org or call the EAA Eagle Flights office at 800-557-2376.
