Big Bear, CA, June 20th, 2016 – The Young Eagles program is held at the Airport and flys on the second Saturday of each month from 8:30 a.m. to 11am, May through September. Before you fly, come into the Barnstorm Cafe for a delicious pancake breakfast including eggs and sausage for only $6/plate. The Young Eagles program was started by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) in an effort to stimulate interest in aviation for young people.
Children between the ages of 8 and 17 are offered a free airplane ride around the Big Bear area by pilots from the Pilot’s Association. Each child will be given a preflight review of the basics of flight and the main parts of an airplane prior to the flight. This program has flown thousands of children over the last five years.
No appointments are necessary, but each child must be accompanied by a parent or adult who must sign a release of liability for the child and can then take pictures of the happy flyer after their flight.
