The Young Eagles program is sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft
Association. It is designed to expose young people to aviation by
providing FREE rides in private aircraft flown by
experienced EAA member pilots. Since it's inception in 1992, over
1.9 MILLION children have been given rides! World renowned
Champion Aerobatic pilot Sean D. Tucker has been the Young Eagles
Chairman since 2013. He is the fifth chair of Young Eagles, following
behind the late Cliff Robertson, Gen. Chuck Yeager, Harrison Ford and
co-chairmen Sully Sullenberger & Jeff Skiles.
