Chapter 20 hosts Young Eagles events—free flights for kids ages 8 to 17—at the San Carlos airport on the third Saturday of the month (no event in July or December). Visit YoungEaglesDay.org for details and to register for an upcoming event. Young Eagles is an EAA program that gives youths an opportunity to experience their first flight in a general aviation airplane. Its sole mission is to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation. More than 2 million young people have participated in this program, which is offered free of charge with costs covered by EAA volunteers.
