Young Eagles Fly Day

Sunday, September 29, 2019

Please join us for our annual autumn Young Eagles Fly Day event on Sunday, September 29th from 9-1. This is our 2nd large event of the year where we show our support for the great YE program. Sponsored by the Fitchburg Pilots Association.

Your Young Eagles® flight will last approximately 20 minutes and you will see the Fitchburg area in a new and exciting way. This is your chance to experience the freedom of flight that many people only dream about.  Many people remember this experience for the rest of their lives. You will, too!

1. On the ground: Your pilot explains what will happen during the flight. You may talk about the airplane, review an aeronautical chart (or map), and complete a careful “walk-around” preflight inspection of the airplane.
2. Just before takeoff: Your pilot explains the interior of the airplane, including the operation of the aircraft door, safety belts, and instrument panel.
3. In the air: The flight lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. And, if you want, your pilot may let you take the controls!
4. Back on the ground: There’s more time for you to ask questions about the flight. Your pilot is happy to tell you more about flying and their particular airplane.

Ages 8-17 only!
