“Learning to fly can seem like a daunting task at first,” said David Leiting, EAA Eagles Program Manager, “but EAA’s Learn to Fly Week will help the dream remain larger than any hurdles.”

Learn to Fly Week begins with 15 webinars scheduled over the first five days, May 13-17. EAA staff members and industry experts will be hosting each webinar. New topics for 2024 include getting started with helicopters, aircraft options for flight training, and training with FAA-approved flight simulators. All webinars are free to attend, but online pre-registration is required.

The week concludes on Saturday, May 18, with EAA Flying Start programs held at numerous chapters throughout the country. At those locations, prospective pilots can connect with the local aviation community, discover flight training opportunities available in their area, and take a free introductory Eagle Flight as part of EAA’s program for adults that connects them with aviation resources.
