Young Eagle 

Our first Young Eagle event will take place Saturday, April 8th from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. at Willard Airport in Savoy.  

We had an excellent turn out for our first Young Eagle event with 5 pilots and excellent ground crew. A last minute change in location from Frasca to Willard due to winds may have slightly impacted our turnout. In 2 hours we flew 41 youngsters.   Thank you to everyone that helped out. 

Our second event was cancelled due to weather.

Our third event we flew 57 kids in 2 hours. Way to go!!
