Soaring like eagles.

You can fly high like Nicholas with the help of the Experimental Aircraft Association's (EAA) Young Eagles program. It promotes interest in flight among eight to seventeen year olds.

When kids join the Young Eagles program, they fly with volunteer pilots in their area. These pilots take kids for test rides in their planes or balloons to help them learn what a pilot does.

After their first flight, kids receive an official Eagle Flight certificate, a subscription to EAA's bimonthly magazine, a membership card, colorful patches, and a Young Eagles decal. Also, each participant's name is entered into the Young Eagle's log book, which is on permanent display at the EAA's Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
