The EAA Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8 - 17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.
Since 1992, more than 1.5 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight through the program. Young Eagles have been registered in more than 90 different countries and have been flown by more than 42,000 volunteer pilots.
The Lost Coast Aviators conduct Young Eagles events every year at the Rohnerville Airport in Fortuna. The 2011 season will be highlighted with a special first time Young Eagles Event in Southern Humboldt County. No Rohnerville Airport Young Eagles Events are currently planned for 2011.
Slots are "first come, first served" and a parent or legal guardian must accompany the child to the event to authorize us to give their child a ride. There is no charge and each child will receive a Young Eagles certificate and other gifts to commemorate their flight.
We use a variety of different airplanes with seating for 1 or as many as 3 riders. So siblings and friends who wish to fly together most often get to do so.
