At EAA393 we believe in the promise of youth and it is our passion to help local young adults become successful aviators!
These are the Youth Programs that EAA 393 Members volunteer for to engage and encourage the youth in Concord and surrounding areas to learn about aviation and how it can expand their horizons!
The Young Eagles program is sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association. It is designed to expose young people, ages 8 through 17, to aviation by providing free rides in private aircraft flown by experienced EAA member pilots.
Throughout the year individual EAA members give Young Eagle rides to kids they know. Many Chapters also hold Young Eagle Rallies where many kids come to get their first airplane ride and are matched up with pilots.
EAA393 Young Eagle flights take place in a wide variety of aircraft types and sizes. The itinerary of each flight can vary depending upon the preferences of the individual pilot and child. Most flights are in an aircraft that carries from one to three passengers and lasts from 20 to 45 minutes.
Most pilots allow the child to steer the airplane and parents are given the chance to meet with their child's pilot before the flight.
All Young Eagle rides are given by licensed private or commercial pilots, in aircraft that have been inspected and certified by the FAA.
Chapter 393 Young Eagle flights are scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of each year in April, May, June, August and September. You will be able to find the exact dates and times in our calendar at the bottom of our home page.
