This Saturday Kids Ages 8-17 Can Take A Free Plane Ride And See Freeport From The Skies

Young Eagles Flight Rally

young-eagles-logoEver wondered what your neighborhood looks like from the sky? Or maybe you’re curious how airplanes even work. You might even dream about being a pilot.

If you’re nodding your head “Yes” and are between the ages of 8 and 17, you’re ready to take a free Young Eagles flight and see what real pilots do on the ground and in the air.

Since 1992, more than 1.9 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight from EAA’s network of volunteer pilots. For many, it was the start of their journey to becoming a pilot, aircraft mechanic, air traffic controller, or many other career possibilities.

This Saturday June 10, 2015 from 9 am – 2 pm at the Albertus Airport, kids ages 8 through 17 are given free plane rides. A parent/guardian must complete and sign a registration form before the flight. Sponsored by the Freeport Pilots Association/EAA Chapter 475. Rain date: June 11. (815-233-4484)
