Free airplane rides will be offered to aviation enthusiasts aged 8 to 17 with their parent’s or guardian’s permission.
The event is sponsored by Chapter 430 of the Experimental Aircraft Association in order to help people discover more about flying and the steps necessary to become a pilot.
Before each 20-minute Eagle Flight, participants will be introduced to aeronautical charts and shown how to perform a complete walkaround inspection of the aircraft.
Volunteer pilots from EAA Chapter 430 also will explain flight controls and how to check the airplane’s critical systems.
After takeoff, pilots will demonstrate basic flight maneuvers — climbs, turns and descents — and allow participants to follow along on the controls.
For more information or to register, phone 360-681-4441.
