It was a great fall day for aviation with many colors still on the trees after the rain and wind. All pilots were pleasantly surprised that it was so smooth in route. We arrived with almost standing room only at “The Runway” Restaurant on the field. We all had good food and conversation. Several had not been there before, passengers, not our pilots. We have some veteran pilots in the 402. Was almost a record for planes and people on a fly out. Nine planes, 17 people:
Cirrus 20 – Bill/Erlene Corbin
Archer II – Larry/Valinda Arnold
“Easy” – Mike/Sarah Toomey Here is Mike’s video of the flight

Ever wondered what your neighborhood looks like from the sky? Or maybe you’re curious how airplanes even work. You might even dream about being a pilot. If you’re nodding your head “Yes” and are between the ages of 8 and 17, you’re ready to take a free Young Eagles flight and see what real pilots do on the ground and in the air.
YOUR FLIGHT EXPERIENCE
Your Young Eagles flight will last approximately 20 minutes and you will see the earth and sky in a new and exciting way. This is your chance to experience the freedom of flight that many people only dream about.
Many people remember this experience for the rest of their lives. You will, too!
- On the ground: Your pilot explains what will happen during the flight. You may talk about the airplane, review an aeronautical chart (or map), and complete a careful “walk-around” preflight inspection of the airplane.
- Just before takeoff: Your pilot explains the interior of the airplane, including the operation of the aircraft door, safety belts, and instrument panel.
- In the air: The flight lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. And, if you want, your pilot may let you take the controls!
- Back on the ground: There’s more time for you to ask questions about the flight. Your pilot is happy to tell you more about flying and their particular airplane.
You also get an official Young Eagles logbook with a personal code to activate your free EAA Student Membership and Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course
Departed Newark at 8:30 am for Mt Victory breakfast Buffet and antique shop. Smooth flight, many happy pilots and passengers. Check out Carl’s photography if you get a chance.
