EAA always encourages its members to take others flying, but on Saturday, May 16, there’s an even better reason to do so: the sixth annual International Learn to Fly Day is an opportunity to help someone take that first step to discover the fun, freedom, and accomplishment of becoming a pilot.
It could be a friend, a relative, a friend of a relative, or a relative of a friend. For a person age 18 or older, you could take an Eagle Flight. If your passenger is age 15-17, you could make it a Young Eagles flight.
Chapter that have planned an event for International Learn to Fly Day should add it to EAA’s Calendar of Events and select the tag “Learn to Fly Day” so everyone will know it’s part of the celebration.
Whether you put on an official chapter function or you and your fellow chapter members do something on your own, we hope that you will be out flying on May 16 introducing someone new to aviation.
