The largest need is for pilots to take children flying, but there are many other ways to support the Young Eagles® program.
Whether you are a current EAA member or not our Chapter 17 Young Eagles coordinators always need additional support in areas such as:
Ground Operations - Assist with parking and directing aircraft
Registration - Help children and parents complete the registration forms before their flight and assigning them to fly with available pilots
Escorts - Escort children safely to and from the aircraft
Ground School Instructors - Many chapters hold simple ground school sessions before the flights. These are often basic walk-around inspections of a display aircraft to familiarize children with the major components of an airplane.
Certificates - Volunteers who complete the Young Eagles certificates for presentation following the flights
Recruiters - Help find children who might be interested in a Young Eagles flight
These are just a few of the many opportunities available in the Young Eagles program. No matter if you are a pilot and want to fly or a non-flying EAA member who wants to participate, there's a way for you to join the Young Eagles team at Chapter 17!
