Free Electronic Book for Young Eagles
The book You Can Afford to Be a Pilot is now available free to EAA Young Eagles participating in certain events. Organizers of EAA Young Eagles and other nonprofit programs that promote the growth of aviation by giving free rides to nonpilots can request coupons that allow participants to download a free complete electronic version of the book (normally priced at $8.99 U.S.). The process is simple and can be completed entirely through e-mail.
Event organizers simply send an e-mail to Tim O’Connor (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 5 days before an event, requesting a coupon set. A coupon will be generated and returned in PDF format which can be printed and given to each Young Eagle family. It contains the simple instructions and coupon code for the free book. The coupon expires two to three days after the event to prevent the coupon code from being irresponsibly distributed through Internet sharing.
You Can Afford to Be a Pilot is available in a wide variety of e-book formats. The printed edition is available in paperback for $10.95 at Amazon.com, and the e-book version can be purchased for the aforementioned price of $8.99. Tim says that by purchasing the paperback or e-book you will be supporting the continued free distribution of the e-book to EAA Young Eagles and other nonprofit promotions that aim to create more pilots and raise awareness of light-sport aviation.
