EAA member pilots from both organizations will be offering free airplane rides to kids between the ages of 8 and 17 years old. These pilots volunteer their airplane and time as part of the Young Eagles program, a program designed to stir interest in aviation among the younger generation.

1.6 million kids world-wide have been flown since the inception of the Young Eagles program just over ten years ago. See this link!   pdf Poster <here>

EAA Young Eagles May 9th: Lots of Happy Kids!!

Elizabeth flyingWe had a great day flying at our Young Eagles Rally. The weather was mostly cooperative and we flew about 85 young people for their first time. You have to be there to fully understand the happiness and excitement this brings to these kids. There are now many Young Eagle Certificates tacked to bedrooms walls all around town and new dreams about flying planes and helicopters!

Thanks to all the members of East Hill and EAA 811 that flew or helped out at the learning stations or on the ramp. The coordination and set-up was superb this year. The food from Wings Over Ithaca was also very good. There were many smiles all around and we made lots of friends in our community. Watch for an Ithaca Journal article on Dave Stern later this week (the one that was supposed to precede and promote this event!) Thank-you also to Doug Lewis and Ithaca ATC for their fantastic support through-out this event and to Taughannock Aviation for the $.30 a gallon fuel discount and waiving the landing fees. Thanks also to member Laura Jones and the other CAP people provided excellent support with parking. (Pictures by Larry Baum, Mike Newman, D.St.G.)
