EAA Chapter 1298
Brooksville, Florida (KBKV)


Young Eagles

The Young Eagles Program was founded by the Experimental Aircraft Association with the mission of introducing young people ages 8 to 17 to the world of aviation. Many of our chapter members participate in the Young Eagles Program

  • How does it work?
    We pair up one of our member pilots and his/her aircraft with a single youngster and take him/her for a short, one-on-one flight around the Brooksville/Spring Hill area. These youngsters will get to see the area from an eagle's perspective, and share in the entire flight experience. Many youngsters remember this positive experience for the rest of their lives.
  • What does it cost?
    Not a thing. Our member pilots volunteer their time and aircraft, and provide these flights free of charge.
  • Is it safe?
    Absolutely. Young Eagles flights are performed by pilots licensed by the FAA, using aircraft which are maintained under appropriate FAA regulation. Flying is considered by many to be safer than travelling in an automobile.
  • How do I arrange for a Young Eagles flight?
