Examples of Above Average Interest in Aviation

EAA Chapter 44 is dedicated to furthering the interest in aviation of kids who have gone up for their first Young Eagle ride. We ask that you keep in mind that the pilots are paying for the operation of their aircraft with their own time and money which is limited. They are NOT able to give additional rides to kids who would simply like to go up for more rides because it is fun. Additional Young Eagle rides may be available if a kid can demonstrate that they have an above average interest in Aviation to one of our Young Eagle Coordinators in advance of an event. Fanning that spark of interest is what our Young Eagle program is all about.

Here are some possible examples of how above average interest might be demonstrated:

  <> Has read numerous aviation books and can demonstrate some retention of what was read.

  <> Likes to build models of airplanes.

  <> Belongs to a model airplane club.

  <> Perhaps they have a scrapbook of aviation related material.

  <> Can show our coordinators aviation book reports they did for school.

  <> Can you think of something we missed?  Discuss it with our Young Eagle Coordinators.

In other words, what has the kid done that shows they have put forth EXTRA effort of their own to learn more about aviation? The examples shown above are just that. If the Young Eagle has done something else that shows an above average interest in aviation, CLICK HERE to CONTACT our Young Eagle Coordinators to discuss that interest.

Do you know of a kid who has an above average interest in aviation?  If so, contact our Young Eagle Coordinators because we'd like to know about him or her.

CLICK HERE for additional details on those steps that can be taken once they have taken that first Young Eagle flight.

Keep in mind that there are additional things that can be done in our local area to further their interest in aviation. Many aviation organizations have programs geared towards kids who might become our future pilots, astronauts, aviation mechanics, aeronautical engineers and aviation enthusiasts.

We can also put you in touch with a local chapter of the Civil Air Patrol, local radio control airplane clubs (RCCR or RAMS), sailplane flying (Finger Lakes Soaring Club) and regional aviation museums.
