Your kids are going to be amazed at their experience at the Young Eagle Plane Rides. The Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) Young Eagles’ Program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people age 8–17 an opportunity to learn about and fly in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of the EAA member volunteers.
The Midland EAA Chapter offers Young Eagles rides on the second Saturday of every month from 9:00 a.m. to noon (weather permitting). A parent or guardian’s signature is required on the permission form. The form is available at the airport on the day of the flight. You can also download it here.
