The last chance to introduce a young person to aviation through the EAA’s Young Eagles program happens this Saturday, November 7th starting about 9 am. Young Eagles nationwide has already introduced nearly 2 million young people to their first taste of flight.
The Young Eagles rally takes place at Signature Flight Support, 1100 S Milwaukee Ave. thanks to the help of the FBO’s Duty Manager Pam Kavanaugh.
If you’re planning to bring your children out for a flight, please call the Young Eagles PWK hot line first (847-484-7142) as soon a possible and follow the prompts. Young Eagles flights begin at 10:00 and continue until the last child lands.
Pilots should arrive by 9:00 and be prepared to use runways 12/30 and 6/24, since runway 16/34 will not be available. Young Eagles aircraft will still use Signature Flight Support’s ramp.
Remember that you can call the Young Eagles hotline (847-484-7142) Friday, November 6th after 6:30 PM, if the weather for Saturday seems threatening. On Saturday morning, weather-related messages will go up by 7:30 M.
