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.

In order to participate, a parent or guardian must accompany the Young Eagle and complete and sign the registration form prior to each flight. Electronic forms are no longer available for download nor are printed/copied forms accepted - original forms only.
It was a very busy day for Young Eagles with a contingent of 25 Navy Sea Cadets in the hangar for their much anticipated flight, as well as some additional unaffiliated Young Eagle participants.
The weather was pretty grim with the typical "June Gloom" weighing heavy over the field and as the overcast began to burn off, there was only one airplane on hand for the years largest group of Young Eagles. But in true EAA14 fashion, a challenging situation became a huge success as additional pilots and aircraft arrived in time to meet the need.
Pilots included Gill Rud, Armond Brattland and Jerry Boughner.
