International Young Eagles Day Is June 11, 2022

By David Leiting, EAA Lifetime 579157, Eagles Program Manager

April 2022 – Dreams will take flight for young people between the ages of 8 and 17 during the 29th annual International Young Eagles Day on Saturday, June 11. Each year we set aside one day to encourage all EAA members and chapters to participate in the Young Eagles program and share their passion for aviation with a new generation.

This year’s celebration means just a bit more, as we continue to return to pre-pandemic life. EAA is aiming to return to 2019’s flight level, and International Young Eagles Day is a great excuse to participate in the program.

To help volunteers gear up, EAA is hosting a webinar on Thursday, April 21, at 7 p.m. CDT, dedicated to planning for International Young Eagles Day. This webinar will cover all the best practices and resources available to make this year’s Young Eagles Day a success.

Whether you fly Young Eagles as part of a chapter-sponsored flight rally, on your own as an individual member, or you volunteer, we urge all EAA members to make sure that young people in their areas have the opportunity to discover flying on June 11, 2022.
