POTENTIAL YOUNG EAGLES, PARENTS AND GROUP LEADERS

Our mission is to provide a meaningful flight experience - free of charge - in a general aviation aircraft for young people (primarily between the ages of 8 and 17; written parental permission is required). If you have someone in that age group who would benefit from a flight experience, visit http://www.youngeagles.org/parents/ for more information.

 Please see our "Meetings & Events" page for future flight opportunities. You may also contact Bob McDaniel via e-mail at dusterpilot@charter.net or phone at 618-530-0805.
