2011-Jul-30 : BABPA Open House & Young Eagles Rally

Saturday, July 30 was a special Young Eagles Event assisting The Bay Area Black Pilots Association (BABPA) with their annual open house. We stepped up to the task and helped with flying the kids and displaying our beautiful airplanes.

There was a huge demand for flights, and unfortunately we had to turn away kids. Within the first Ĺ hour we had over 25 kids signed up. Our pilots flew over 50 kids and I heard that the BABPA flew about 30 kids. Thatís over 80 kids total!

We also had a table to let attendees know about our chapter and the Young Eagles Program. Cynthia signed up a few new members and also gave everyone interested a Young Eagles flyer. Hopefully many of these people return to our chapter in the future.

All in all it was a successful event. Thanks to all the Chapter 29 volunteers for helping. with this special event.
