For immediate release:
1,486,963 kids have gotten free airplane rides, and yours could be next. Michael Harris is coordinator for the “Young Eagles” program at the Newark-Heath Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association. Harris says EAA began the program in 1992. Nationwide and locally, members provide free airplane rides to kids age 8-17 to give them “a taste of what it’s all about” according to Harris. While the EAA was founded by pilots interested in building their own planes, today it’s expanded to be a source of information and support for all kinds of pilots, including the nation’s biggest annual airshow at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Anyone who’s earned the private pilot certificate can join EAA and be part of the Young Eagles program. Continue reading “August 24th Press Release”
