On Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport, kids ages 8-17 can ride in an airplane for free through the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). A parent must be present to sign the permission slip.
Launched in 1992, the Young Eagles program has dedicated more than 25 years to giving youth ages 8–17 their first free ride in an airplane. It’s the only program of its kind, with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation.
Today, more than 2 million young people have enjoyed a free introductory flight through the Young Eagles program. These flights are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.
