Free Young Eagles® Flights

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: 2,353,977Stats as of December 6, 2023
