Planning a flight rally is a popular activity for a number of reasons. A chapter can concentrate volunteer resources to fly Young Eagles®, handle paperwork, and safety. It is often times easier to handle groups of children, such as from a youth group or school, and there is a social aspect of participating with other volunteers on a flight day.
A flight rally must be sponsored by an EAA chapter (or field representative) and the chapter must be actively involved in the planning and execution of the event to be a sponsor.
The guide below will help you plan your first rally. As you become more comfortable with your volunteers and airport, feel free to adapt these ideas to your location.
