Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 501 will be hosting a free airplane ride for kids as part of the Young Eagles Flight Rally on Sunday, August 25, 2019 at Lincoln Park Airport in New Jersey.
Free flights will be available for kids ages 8 to 17. The event hopes to grow youth interest in flying and lead to flight lessons with a certified flight instructor (CFI).
Members of the EAA Chapter 501 volunteer their time and airplanes to fly kids around the local area. Other members will help kids getting in and out of the airplanes. This is a great opportunity for kids to make new friends who are also in love with aviation. EAA Chapter 501 is creating a unique opportunity that allows kids to explore aviation!
Children will be flown on a first come first served basis. However a simple email with the number of children and their ages would be appreciated for event planning purposes. Email our program coordinator Allen Dunn at [email protected]
When you arrive at the airport all parents/guardians must fill out and sign the waiver agreement and flight registration record forms. These MUST be signed by a parent or guardian. Blank forms will be available at the registration desk at our base of operations.
Be sure to come out to the EAA Chapter 501 Young Eagles Flight Rally this Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon at Lincoln Park Airport.
Flight Training For Kids in a Simulator
Taking Flight Lesson in a Simulator in Manhattan.
Training with a Certified Instructor brings real-world experience to each simulator session and creates a strong knowledge and practical foundation in a student’s training. Lessons in our simulator would be a great compliment to your Young Eagle! Flying lessons for kids in a simulator allows them to get an understanding of the flight controls. The lesson can also be paused so that they may ask any questions or the CFI to explain details about certain maneuvers or functions.
