Young Eagles

The Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 by EAA the Experimental Aircraft Association, based in Oshkosh Wisconsin. Our mission is to provide a meaningful flight experience – free of charge – in a general aviation aircraft for young people between the ages of 8 and 17. A brochure is available for download that explains more about the program.

Since the program’s inception, more than one and a half million Young Eagles have flown under the auspices of the program. These flights have been provided through the generosity of nearly 40,000 EAA member volunteer pilots. Countless other volunteers support the flights.

Young Eagle flights have been conducted in every state in America; each province in Canada; and in more than 90 other countries. The flights have been safely conducted in nearly every type of general aviation aircraft, from light planes to business jets, and everything in between! Your child can join the ranks of Young Eagles and see their world from a whole new perspective. For more information, see the brochure.

If you would like to provide your child with the opportunity to take advantage of this unique program, please call the Chapter 40 Hot Line at (818) 725-4AIR (725-4247). Reservations are advised but not required.

A registration form is required for the Young Eagles flight. A parent or guardian must complete and sign this registration form to allow the child to participate in the Young Eagles flight. The form has two sides. BOTH SIDES MUST BE COMPLETE. Please be sure to read and understand the form. This form is available at the event. The Registration Form is also available online for your convenience.

Our Young Eagles events are usually held on the fourth Saturday of each month at��Whiteman airport, at 10:30 AM, on the grass in front of the airport office.
