CLEARWATER – Area young people ages 8 to 17 will have the chance to take to the skies on Saturday, March 9, 8 a.m. to noon, at Clearwater Airpark, 1000 N. Hercules Ave. as part of the annual Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 282’s Young Eagles Flight Rally.

This program is to interest young people in aviation.

“Free airplane rides are just part of the Flight Rally,” said Bob Flynn, spokesman for the event. “We hope to build one-on-one relationships between pilots and young people, giving the 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 every flight, children will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle.

Other events scheduled include monitoring the aircraft in flight via a radio, touring the EAA Chapter 282 hangar and seeing an aerobatic airplane that’s being built by the members. There also will be a pancake breakfast with coffee, cold drinks and other items for a small donation.

Those attending the rally are asked to be at the airpark starting at 8 a.m. to register for their flight. Flights will begin at 9 a.m., with registration closing at 11 a.m. and the last flight being at noon.

Check eaa282.org for weather information and cancellation notice if necessary, which will be posted by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 8. Call 458-4420. The rain date is Sunday, March 10.
