The EAA Young Eagles program was launched by the Experimental Aircraft Association in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8 - 17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.

Since 1992, more than 1.6 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight through the program. Young Eagles have been registered in more than 90 different countries and have been flown by more than 42,000 volunteer pilots.

Participation is easy. EAA Chapter 1476 is hosting a Young Eagles day Sunday, March 20th from 9:00 am to 12:00 at Rancho Murieta Airport, in Rancho Murieta off Highway 16.  Come out and go for a plane ride.  You can check us out at, or e-mail
