Launched in 1992, the Young Eagles program has dedicated 30 years to giving youth ages 8–17 their first free ride in an airplane.

It’s the only program of its kind, with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation.

Today, over 2.3 million young people have enjoyed a free introductory flight through the Young Eagles program. These flights are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.

Join us in offering youth ages 8-17 the opportunity to experience The Spirit of Aviation® by becoming a Young Eagles volunteer today!

Total Young Eagles Flown: 2,373,531Stats as of May 23, 2024


EAA International Young Eagles Day – June 8, 2024

This year, EAA will celebrate the 31st annual International Young Eagles Day on Saturday, June 8, 2024. 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. Young people ages 8 through 17 will have the opportunity to take a free aircraft ride to introduce them to the world of flight.

We hope you will consider flying Young Eagles on International Young Eagles Day this year. We are immensely grateful for all the time and effort that are donated by our many volunteers each year to help introduce young people to the world of aviation, and we cannot thank you enough for your work.
