So I kept hearing of this great opportunity for kids to try flying...and I kept passing it by because it is for kids 8 and up--then Eli turned 8!!!! So we have done it and I have to share!!
Young Eagles Flying Program This is such a great opportunity!!!! The kids get to hang out with a pilot learn about his plane then they get a free ride!!! And a certificate to remember the experience!
And they can keep returning to try flying again!
After age 12 they receive a "logbook" and as they continue in the Young Eagles Program they and study and receive ground instruction through Sporty's Pilot Shop. Then as they progress through the program there is opportunity for flying lessons and guidance in finding a career in aviation!
