Young Eagles Day at AZ82

This past Saturday, EAA Chapter 1044 participated in the Experimental Aircraft Association’s International Young Eagles Day.

Chapters from around the world offered youth from ages 8-17 the opportunity to experience to the wonders of aviation… and hopefully inspired a few. Our chapter and its pilots flew 20 local area youth on a short flight around the area. For many, this was their first flight in an aircraft of any type, large or small. All were excited to see their community from a new viewpoint… a couple thousand feet above. You can click HERE to see all the happy faces!
