Free flights offered to local youth May 19 

–Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Young Eagles Program will take flight in Paso Robles Saturday May 19, from 9 a.m. -3 p.m.

Since 1992, more than 2 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 aviation career possibilities.

On Saturday May 19, 2018, members of EAA Chapter 465 of Paso Robles will provide free flights to introduce young people to aviation at the Paso Robles Airport. Flights will originate from the vicinity of the airport terminal, commencing at approximately 9 to 10 a.m., weather permitting. A parent or legal guardian will be required to sign a permission form prior to the flight.

After the flight, the Young Eagle will get a signed personal logbook and free access to Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course ($199 value), first flight lesson ($120 value), admission to 300+ science and technology museums, Academy of Model Aeronautics Student Membership, electronic copy of EAA Sport Aviation monthly magazine, and access to valuable flight training awards, education scholarships, and Air Academy camperships.
