2024 Young Eagles at DeKalb County Airport
VAA 37, A Hangar

Saturday –  May 4th, May 11th, June 15th, August 24th
Registration is from 9am-11am and Flights are from 9am-1pm.


Kids 8-17 fly free. No purchase, no catch. Fully volunteer funded and staffed. Each Young Eagles flight covers pre-flight, in-flight, and post-flight activities.

Pre-flight: The pilot will explain what will happen during the flight. This might include talking about the aircraft; reviewing an aeronautical chart; completing a preflight inspection of the aircraft and identifying the parts that control the aircraft. The pilot will then help you buckle your seat belt and will describe the interior of the aircraft, including the instrument panel.

In-flight: Once in the air, you’ll see the earth and sky in a new and exciting way. The flight will last between 15 and 20 minutes and you may even get to take the controls!

Post-flight: Once back on the ground, there will be additional time for you to ask questions about the flight. Ask away! The pilot will be happy to tell you more about flying.
Each Young Eagle will receive a certificate and a logbook signed by the pilot. In addition, the Young Eagle is eligible for a number of other free benefits such as a student membership to EAA, access to Sporty’s Learn To Fly online flight training course and more! See the Young Eagles Flightplan  for more information.

All flights and events are weather permitting. Additional information is available at VAA 37 and www.youngeagles.org
