The EAA Young Eagles Workshops program provides an opportunity for EAA chapters to offer youth who are of school age (approximately 11 to 17) an opportunity to learn about aviation in a social setting at a local airport. EAA Young Eagles Workshops can be a one-day or a multiple day experience geared to introduce kids to the basic elements of airplanes and aviation.
Through various classroom-style learning and hands-on activities, EAA Young Eagles Workshops provide emotional, creative, social, and educational growth to kids with mentorship from EAA chapter members. These workshops focus on specialized aviation content and materials to offer kids to embrace aviation as a potential recreational or career path as they mature.
To purchase a Young Eagles Workshops kit, you must register and commit to holding an event within the next year. The kit is meant to be used by chapters for EAA Young Eagles Workshop events only.
We understand that it is difficult to decide an exact date and time for your workshop in today’s environment, but please estimate the event date, time, and format you would like to see your chapter commit to. This information in needed to track chapter events and a Chapters team member will be checking in with your chapter leading up to that estimated date.
