EAA’s Flying Start program allows EAA chapters to welcome, encourage, and educate new aviation enthusiasts to the fun, freedom, and accessibility of personal aviation.
The program consists of an EAA-prepared PowerPoint presentation and video that provide the attendees with information about learning to fly. The hosting chapter can customize this experience with information about their local chapter and flight training resources. The event is capped off with an Eagle Flight with an EAA volunteer mentor pilot.
The goal of the Flying Start program is to provide interested adults a pathway to flight training and involvement with their local EAA chapter.
