A Great Day of Fun at our...
Young Eagles Logo ...Young Eagles Rally, was on a beautiful, albeit hot Saturday morning. Seven different aircraft and pilots were available to educate our young guests and give the Gift of Flight.

At the Airport

Our thanks to Airport Manager Pete O'Brien (left) and Richmor Aviation for the use of their facilities at the Columbia County Airport (seen here with Steve Mapes, our Treasurer.)

The rally is part of the EAA Aviation Foundation's Young Eagles Program, created to get more young people interested in aviation. Volunteer EAA pilots have provided one million young people an airplane ride by the 100th anniversary of powered flight and the 50th anniversary of EAA in the year 2003.

To our Young Eagles:
If you recognize yourself on this page, please email your name and plane you flew so we can post it next to your picture.

Free airplane rides are just part of the Flight Rally, said Eric Beebe, Chapter 146 President, spokesman for the event. "We hope to build one-to-one relationships between pilots and young people, giving a new generation a chance to learn more about the possibilities that exist in the world of aviation."
