Aircraft Spruce and Peachtree City’s Atlanta Regional Airport-Falcon Field will be hosting local Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) members who will provide school-age children with an opportunity to experience flight in a general aviation airplane Saturday, Nov. 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The EAA Young Eagles program is designed to give children between the ages of 8 and 17 an opportunity to experience flight in a general aviation airplane while educating them about aviation. Launched in 1992, the program has flown more than 1.5 million children in 90 countries.
The 2013 Falcon Field Young Eagles Rally is offered for free, courtesy of donations and volunteers.
Flights will be coordinated by Williamson-based EAA Chapter 468. While pre-registration is not required, interested pilots or potential Young Eagles may contact EAA 468 Young Eagles Coordinator Charles Lindsey at 678-641-7513 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aircraft Spruce, a long-time supporter of the EAA Young Eagles program, is promoting the program to the aviation community throughout the Southeast.
“Aircraft Spruce has been a major supporter of the EAA Young Eagles Program from the beginning and we continue to support the program today,” said Don Arrington, Director of Operations, Aircraft Spruce East.
This is the third year that Aircraft Spruce has supported the Young Eagles flights in Peachtree City.
