Kids Fly the Friendly Skies During Young Eagles Rally

It was a chance of a lifetime for the 70 kids enjoying free airplane rides during Saturday’s Young Eagles Flight Rally sponsored by Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 34 at Arlington Municipal Airport.  Smiling youngsters came from around the Metroplex to learn about careers in aviation, including how to become a pilot and how to read an aeronautical chart (map). Some kids wondered what Arlington would look like from the sky, while others were curious how airplanes actually work.

Volunteer EAA pilots explained more about their airplanes, allowing young people to discover how airplanes work and safety protocols.  After each flight, kids received a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. Their names have been entered into the “World’s Largest Logbook,” which is on display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, WI. The logbook also can be viewed by visiting www.youngeagles.org.

  1. The next Young Eagles Rally will be hosted by EAA Chapter 168 and be held at the Vintage Flying Museum in Fort Worth at Meacham Airport this Saturday June 15 from 8:00 A.M. until 10:00 A.M. Everyone is welcome.

  2. I am involved with EAA Chapter 34 and have been attending meetings for several years. My family has gone to Oshkosh for several years to attend EAA Air Venture but I have to say these Young Eagle Rallies are awesome and promote the passion for aviation and building stronger communities.
