In this month's issue, our new president, Tom Hail, talks about his flying background and his vision of what the chapter will be doing in the next few years.
The December issue has been posted. This month's issue features photos of some of the 4000+ kids flown this year by EAA 119 in the Young Eagles program.
The program is open to kids 8-17. Participants will get a free, 20-minute flight along with a commemorative photo and certificate.
Free lunch is also included for the kids. Parents can pay $3.00 if they would like lunch as well.
The Young Eagles Program has been developed by the EAA Aviation Foundation to welcome young people into the world of aviation. Aviation is exciting and vital to our nation's future. They will experience a safe and enjoyable flight that will give new perspectives on the world and life in general. Participation in the Young Eagle's Program will help them understand that an individual's potential is unlimited.
Note: This will be the last Young Eagles event in 2008.
