Young Eagles flight rally at airport is scheduled for May 20, 2006
Area young people ages 8-17 will have a chance to take to the skies, with Experimental Aircraft at Columbia Airport this Saturday
By Carla M. Kirkland
Young Eagle Coordinator, Local Adjunct
Saturday, May 20, beginning at 9:00 AM!
Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 657 (Vine Grove Chapter) graciously hosts the first Adair County Young Eagles Flight Rally at the Columbia Airport, weather permitting.
This activity is completely free of charge.
Forms can be picked up at the Chamber of Commerce
Commitment/consent forms should be picked up at The Adair County Chamber of Commerce and mailed to the address on the form with a postmark no later than Thursday, May 18, to be confirmed eligible. Participants must be between 8 and 17 years of age, but do not have to be Adair County School District students or Adair County residents.
The rally is part of the EAA Young Eagles Program, created to interest young people in aviation. Since the program was launched in 1992, volunteer EAA pilots have flown more than 1.1 million young people who reside in more than 90 countries.
Free airplane rides are just part of the Flight Rally
"Free airplane rides are just part of the Flight Rally," said Carla Kirkland, local coordinator for the event. "The objective is to build relationships between pilots and young people, and to give a new generation a chance to learn more about career and personal possibilities that exist in the world of aviation."
Participants at the event will receive a pre-flight ground briefing about basic aerodynamics. The ground briefing also ensures that safety is the prime concern before every flight.
Following the flight, each young person will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. Their name will then be entered into the "World's Largest Logbook," which is on permanent display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, WI.
Additional information about EAA and the EAA Young Eagles program is available on EAA's Home Page at www.eaa.org. The Young Eagles web page is www.youngeagles.org or the Chapter web site at www.eaa657.org.
