EAA Young Eagles Program

Have you ever wondered what it's like to fly?

Next Event: TBA

Kids who become Young Eagles get to live an experience far beyond imagination. Join this special group and share the thrill of aviation! Each plane ride starts with a pre-flight safety lesson from the pilot, and soon, kids are enjoying a whole new and beautiful view of the world below. Take to the skies, and become a Young Eagle. You're invited!

How can you become a Young Eagle?

1. Be a boy or girl age 8 - 17

2. You and your parents or guardian should print and complete this registration form before your flight. Groups of 5 or more should call at least one day in advance.

3. Print and complete this City of St. Petersburg Release Form before your flight.

4. Bring the above completed forms to your EAA pilot who will prepare you for your demonstration flight.  Can't download or print here? No worries, forms are available on site at the event.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to fly?

Young Eagles can ask their volunteer professional pilot as many questions as they wish. Curiosity helps Young Eagles learn about airplanes and the principles of flight. We make it simple for you to be safe, have fun, and learn a lot!

Apply for a flight training scholarship!

Scholarships are an important part of the new Young Eagles flight plan. Young Eagles can sign up online for Sporty's Complete Pilot Training program for free. When completed, they're eligible for funds to be used for flight training! (Read more...)

Young Eagles can even earn a free flight lesson!

Building on the success of the Sporty's Complete Pilot Training Course offered to Young Eagles after their flight, EAA recently introduced a new program to provide a free first flight lesson. The flight lesson is available to any Young Eagle who completes the first part of the Sporty's course. Once a child reaches that milestone, EAA will contact them and issue a voucher good at most flight schools and with independent CFIs. You can read more here.
