Young Eagles is an EAA program that gives youths between the ages of 8 and 17 an opportunity to experience their first flight in a general aviation airplane for free. The sole mission of Young Eagles is to introduce kids to the world of aviation. More than 2.2 million young people have participated in this program, which is offered free of charge with costs covered by EAA volunteers.
Donations to Young Eagles supports youth programs such as scholarships to youths age 12 to 18 to attend the EAA Air Academy.
