Another success for EAA 292!! We did one of the best Young Eagles Saturdays ever. We flew 61 kids. This was with 7 pilots and a large ground crew. We need more pilots. Please consider joining us next June and flying some Young Eagles. We are having a positive effect on introducing aviation to young people. I realize that flying these events costs $50-$100 in fuel, but this is tax deductable as a donation and is simply an investment in aviation’s future. Every time I do these flights a kid walks away with a big smile and I walk away feeling that I have done something positive.
Young Eagles Rally September 13, 2014
EAA Chapter 292 held our 2nd Young Eagle Rally of 2014 on September 13th. It was a tremendous success since the weather cooperated and eight pilots flew 61 Young Eagles. Over one-third had flown before and were excited to fly again. Hopefully introducing them several times will help keep their interest in aviation.
