Ever look into the sky when an airplane flies overhead? Wonder what it would be like to be up there instead of down here? Quit wondering and schedule a free, introductory flight with EAA's Young Eagles program. You'll fly with a licensed, local pilot who will help you take the first steps to make your dream of flying come true.

Charlotte EAA Chapter 309 is proud to offer the Young Eagles Program to the Charlotte and surrounding area. We are excited that Sully and Jeff are our new Chairmen, bringing their passion of aviation to the youth of America and the World.

The Young Eagles program provides a meaningful flight experience – free of charge – in a general aviation aircraft for young people between the ages of 8 and 17. You will receive a free local airplane ride and and see their world from a whole new perspective, receive a free official certificate to show to your friends, and become one of over 1.5 Million Young Eagles registered in the World's Largest Logbook! After your flight your pilot will present to you your very own logbook with the flight recorded. Inside it you will find a code to use the NEXT STEP program, also free of charge.

Young Eagle flights have been conducted in every state in America; each province in Canada; and in more than 90 other countries. The flights have been safely conducted in nearly every type of general aviation aircraft, from light planes to business jets, and everything in between!

YOUNG EAGLES FLIGHT PLAN  Since the Young Eagles program began, it has become the most successful youth aviation education program in history!
Those programs include the EAA Flight Plan for young people, encompassing Sporty’s Online Pilot Training Course – free of charge – that has already been accessed by more than 20,000 Young Eagles in just three years, as well as EAA student memberships available to all Young Eagles at no cost.
