Ground School. All Young Eagles had the chance to learn about aviation, aerodynamics and flight safety before their flight, taught by Joe Begany and Gary Baker. A display from Wayne County RC Club is in the background.
Young Eagle Alexa enjoyed her flight with pilot, Karl Aber.
Our intrepid Ground Crew kept the airplanes and passengers flowing smoothly all day.
Nationally, the Young Eagles program has flown nearly 2 million kids with the help of EAA’s network of volunteer pilots and ground volunteers, including the members of Chapter 846.
Each year we fly young people age 8-17 at Wadsworth Airport. Each child will attend a short ground school, followed by a free airplane ride with a qualified pilot. A parent or guardian must be present. Join us on Sat., June 9, at the Wadsworth Municipal Airport, and let your child fly like an eagle!
