Step 4: First Flight Lesson

After completing the first three volumes of the Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course, you’ll qualify for a free first flight lesson at a flight school of your choice ($130 value).

This step is easy - EAA will contact you as soon as you qualify for your free lesson!

How do I qualify?

To be eligible for the free flight lesson, you must have taken a Young Eagles® flight, completed the first three volumes of the Sporty’s course, and be at least 13 years of age.

OK, so I qualify, now what?

EAA will mail you a form for your parents to sign. Once EAA receives your completed form, we email your flight lesson voucher with instructions on how to redeem it. Your form may take 7-10 days to arrive in the mail once you complete the 3 volumes. Do not call Sporty’s, EAA will automatically send you the form.

How do I find a flight school?

Search for flight school in your area.

Is there an age requirement for my flight lesson?

Yes, you must be between the ages of 13 and 19.

Can I give my voucher certificate to someone else?

No. The voucher is only valid for the Young Eagle listed on the voucher certificate.

What should I do after my first flight lesson?

You are encouraged to sign up for more flight lessons and work toward earning a pilot certificate!
