Experimental Aircraft Association - Chapter 55 is pleased to invite pilots and non-pilots alike to join us as the Chapter hosts a variety of events this summer.
Young Eagle Aviation Days from 10 a.m. until 2 pm. on Saturday, June 10; Saturday, July 8, and Saturday, August 12.
Local pilots will be offering area youngsters ages 8 to 17 an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane (weather permitting). These flights are offered FREE of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member pilots and volunteers. Flights will be on a first come, first served bases; approximately 20 minutes in length. A parent or guardian MUST be present or provide a signed permission slip.
Young Eagles Aviation Day is part of the National EAA Young Eagles Program. Local Chapter 55 pilots have flown over 4,000 youngsters from the mid-Michigan area.
All Chapter 55 events are held at Mason Jewett Airport; Eden Road @ Kipp Road (south of the Ingham County Fairgrounds). Admission and parking for all events is FREE. Donations benefit the Newberry Aviation Scholarship Fund.
