There were eight pilots who volunteered their time and airplanes to take the new and returning Young Eagles aloft. An event like this requires a lot of help to make things run smoothly, and over thirty ground volunteers assisted in various tasks
When youths become Young Eagles they receive a certificate and a logbook with that day’s flight logged in it. Once they register their logbook at youngeagles.org they receive a free student membership in EAA, free online access to Sporty’s Pilot Shop’s “Learn To Fly” program, and other opportunities. Their flights get recorded in the World’s Largest Logbook at EAA Headquarters in Oshkosh, WI, and are available to be seen online.
Truckee’s EAA Chapter thanks all who participated in making this Young Eagles event a wonderful experience for all of the kids who flew with us. We also thank the Truckee Tahoe Airport District and Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co. for their support.
The chapter returns to Beckwourth Nervino Airport on September 10, which is also the date of the Portola Rotary Annual Fly-In Pancake Breakfast. We’ll start registering and flying at 8 a.m. Come fly with us!
