The Young Eagles Mission
The Mission of the EAA Aviation Foundation's Young Eagles Program is to provide a motivational aviation experience, focusing on a demonstration flight in an airplane. These flights are provided free of charge to any youth wishing to participate.
The Young Eagles Goal
The Young Eagles Program has set a goal of providing 1 million young people ages 8 through 17 with a free introductory airplane ride. These rides are provided through the generosity of volunteer EAA pilots and members of other authorized aviation organizations.

Today was a busy Young Eagles Flight Day for EAA Chapter 14. 19 Boy Scouts from troops 2 and 108 attended along with 10 other new and regular Young Eagles participants. They flew with pilots Gil, Jerry, Ron and Ryan. Although the weather had been perfectly clear the previous day, today the air remained thick and hazy keeping us grounded until about 10:30am. Even then, the coast to the west and the mountains to the east were often obscured. But our faithful pilots got everyone some time in the air, some Young Eagles flying for the very first time.
We held the Young Eagle and safety briefings in the newly painted Eagles Nest - the dedicated space for eagles of all ages. The Nest will continue to evolve and showcase Chapter 14's educational programs and activities. Thanks to the construction crew of Chuck, Ryan Jimmy and others for their time and effort in creating this cozy space.
And a special thanks to our dedicated Young Eagle pilots Gil, Ryan, Jerry and Ron for giving their time and flying their aircraft, Dennis, Tristan and Jesse for volunteer support and lunch cooks Joan and Donna for the special Young Eagle fare.
The morning was another very successful flight day for the EAA Chapter 14 Young Eagles program.
