CLEARWATER – Young people ages 8 to 17 will have the chance to fly on Saturday, March 1, 8 a.m., at the Clearwater Airpark, 1000 N. Hercules Ave.

The rally is part of the EAA Young Eagles Program created to interest young people in aviation. Since the program was launched in 1992, volunteer EAA pilots have flown more than 1.8 million young people in more than 90 countries.

“Free airplane rides are just part of the Flight Rally,” said Bob Flynn, 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.”

Pilots at the event also will explain more about their airplanes, allowing young people to discover how airplanes work and how pilots ensure safety is the prime concern before every flight.

Following the flight, each young person will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. Their name will then be entered into the “World’s Largest Logbook,” which is on permanent display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wis. It also is accessible at www.youngeagles.org.

Those who wish to fly should be at the airpark starting at 8 a.m. to register for their flight. Registration is first come, first served and will continue until 11 a.m. unless the maximum of 50 Young Eagles signed up is reached, which also would end registration.

Weather will be monitored. Check www.eaa282.org for information and cancelation notices if necessary. Any cancelation notice will be posted by 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28. A rain date is set for Sunday, March 2.

Call Bob Flynn at 458-4420 or email yecoordinator@eaa282.org.
