April 23, 2017 - Five pilots flew 43 Young Eagles.
At our June 4 Y.E. event, three pilots flew 32 kids.
On October 1 our scheduled Y.E. event was rained out.
Our first 2018 Young Eagle event will be on Sunday, April 22. A June event is still TBD. In October we hope to fly on the Sunday the 21st.
Three times a year EAA Chapter 501 conducts a "Young Eagles Flight Rally" at Lincoln Park Airport. It gives kids ages 8 to 17 a free plane ride as an introduction to the fun of flying.
Weather permitting, they begin at 9am and end at about noon.
