EAA Acadiana Chapter 1490 supports the Young Eagles initiative by hosting two events each year.
The EAA Young Eagles program began in 1992 as a way to introduce young people to the world of aviation. Kids ages 8-17 are given a free airplane ride. Frequently this represents their first airplane ride, or their first ride in a small plane. Many describe their ride as being "AWESOME".
The flights are made possible by the generous participation of EAA member pilots.
Our coordinators of the Young Eagles program are Dave Guidry and Christopher Haley.
