- Ever Dream of Flying? -
What is Flying Start?
- Flying Start is an EAA program for chapters as a way to reach out to the local community and provide an opportunity to engage with people who are interested in the world of flight.
What is its mission?
- Through Flying Start, chapters will break down the percieved barriers that prevent people from participating in general aviation. Participants will walk away from the Flying Start event with an “I can do this” point of view, and a clear understanding of “how flying can fit into my life”, and “what I can do with this hobby".
How will the mission be accomplished?
- Invite those who are interested in the world of flight, to a formal Flying Start event hosted by local EAA Chapters. Participating individuals will be provided with ways to get involved in general aviation. The hosting EAA chapter will formally present an EAA prepared presentation, in the form of a PowerPoint, video, and personal experiences to speak on how aviation fits into their life style. Participants will also be able to take a FREE introductory flight through the EAA Eagle Flights program.
EAA is still in the testing phases for the EAA Flying Start program.
