EAA Eagle Flights

When you say, “I’ve always wanted to fly,” we know what you’re talking about. That’s why EAA created EAA Eagle Flights. Now you can discover the fun, freedom, and accessibility of personal aviation through a hands-on introductory flight experience with an EAA member pilot in your area, or right here with EAA Chapter 1611.

An Eagle Flight is your opportunity to experience some of what aviation has to offer. You’ll fly with a licensed, local EAA member pilot who will take you through the steps of flying your own airplane - from visually inspecting an airplane before the flight to taking off, landing, and navigating the sky.

EAA's Eagle Flights® is a free introductory flight experience and informal mentoring program designed to welcome and encourage adults who want to discover flying, but don’t know how or where to take that first step. It begins with a hands-on introduction, where you’ll fly with a local EAA-member pilot who will let you follow along at the controls of the airplane to get a feel for what being a pilot is all about. After the flight, he or she can help you learn more about how to get involved in your local aviation community, including the next steps you can take on the path to becoming a pilot.

The best part? The whole experience is free. No sales. No pressure. Just a whole lot of fun and education with a big take-home point: Your dream of flying is a lot closer than you think.

Contact us and arrange a convenient time to go flying. Enjoy your Eagles Flight and your first step into the exciting world of aviation! You will not regret it.
