Young Eagles Program

What is EAA Young Eagles?

The EAA Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, ages  8-17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane.  These flights are made possible by the generosity of EAA member volunteers.  Since 1992, more than 1.3 Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight through the program.  Young Eagles have been registered in more than 90 countries and have been flown by more than 41,000 volunteer pilots.   Participation is easy.

So what is the flight like?

The biggest question on your mind might be about the actual flight. So what should you expect?

First of all, your pilot will explain what will happen during the flight. This might include talking about the airplane; reviewing an aeronautical chart (or map); identifying reference points during the flight; completing a careful “walk around” preflight inspection of the airplane and identifying the parts that control the airplane.

Once you are ready to go flying, your pilot will help you buckle your seat belt and describe the interior of the airplane, including the instrument panel. Pretty soon, it will be time to go flying!

Once in the air, you’ll see the earth and sky in a new and exciting way. You’ll experience the wonderful freedom of flight that many people only dream about. If you are like most Young Eagles, you’ll remember this experience for the rest of your life.

Most Young Eagle flights last between 15 and 20 minutes. Once back on the ground, there will be additional time for you to ask questions about the flight. Ask away! Your pilot will be happy to tell you more about flying and their particular airplane. And don’t forget, you’ll also receive an official Young Eagles certificate, which is signed, by your personal pilot and our Chairman Harrison Ford.

Pancake Breakfast

Posted in Daily with tags , , on July 18, 2009 by jjhebert02

Grampy woke us up at 5:50a.m. so we could have pancake breakfast at Lee’s summit Airport, Mo.  The breakfast was held in a airplane hangar

You have to do things right

Grampy took us to Dick’s so that we could get helmets and knee pads so we can go skating.  Yeah.  We can’t wait.  He also took us to look at some motorcycles. And guess what our reward was. He took us to Sheridan’s Frozen custard.  Wow!! It’s a great place.  We did not know what to order.  Jordan got a chocolate concrete. Joshua got a vanilla concrete and Grampy ordered a Big Kahuna Concrete for Mamaw.

We haven’t seen any children from the neighborhood.  But some grownups from the neighborhood came by.  They said that people have been driving too fast down the street and they want to make sure that everyone is safe so they are going to have the police come by and use the radar gun to catch people that are speeding.

Becoming a man – duck tape

Posted in Uncategorized on July 17, 2009 by jjhebert02

For the last few days we have been helping Mamaw clean out her garage.  We have been taking boxes from the garage and putting them into the basement. Today, we were going to put a box in the basement, but it had come apart. Mamaw went to look for packing tape to tape the box.  Grampy went to the trunk of his car and brought out some grey tape.  When Mamaw got back, she said, “you guys have just been inducted into the beginning of manhood.  Do you know what that is, she said pointing to the grey tape.  That is duct tape. Everyman knows and uses duct tape”.  Grampy said, “that’s right.  You can use it for everything.  Then they laughed.

Fried Chicken

Posted in Uncategorized on July 17, 2009 by jjhebert02

Mamaw decided to let us help her make chicken for dinner.  She gave us chicken wings and showed us how to cut them.  We cut the wing into three pieces.  We put the pieces into seasoned flour and fried them.  Joshua and I made mashed potatoes. We got five potatoes.  One for each person and plus one. We used a potato pealer and skinned the potatoes then we cut the potato into pieces.  We put them in a glass container and cooked them in the micro wave oven.  Joshua used the blender and mashed the potatoes.  He added garlic salt and milk   Ummm, they were good.  We all ate dinner together.
