Chapter 1114

Young Eagles Coordinator -- Bob Cassell

Our YE Coordinator volunteer is Bob Cassell. He can be contacted at YoungEagles@eaa1114.org.

If you have a child that is interested in a free introductory flight in an airplane, fill out a YE Interest Response and we'll put you on the list and let you know when we have an upcoming rally. 

There may be additional events listed on the Calendar page.

If you would like to get involved with this very worthwhile activity, there is a lot of information on the national EAA site. Click here to take a look

Remember, you do not have to be part of a full-blown rally to fly Young Eagles. There are forms in the Bull Shack if you need them, and there are plenty in the YE trailer.  So if you find a young person that wants to go, take them up. Give the paperwork to Bob or you can mail it in yourself.

*New* - 2018 planning

We are in process of reconstituting our YE program, and we are planning to sponsor three rallies in 2018, and perhaps participate in another two or three rallies sponsored by other Chapters. Tentative dates for our rallies are:

  • 4/14/2018 - Focus on kids from Collings Foundation’s Wings of Freedom Tour
  • 6/9/2018 -  International Young Eagles Day
  • 9/22/2018

We are in the process of coordinating date availability and other factors with Chapter volunteers, airport managers, etc. If you have any suggestions for 2018 rally locations, facilities, etc. please let Bob know. Our tentative rally locations (with date assignments coming soon) are below:

  • Primary
    KJNX - Johnston Regional Airport in Smithfield, NC
    KHNZ - Henderson-Oxford Airport in Oxford, NC
    KTTA - Raleigh Executive Airport in Sanford, NC
  • Secondary
    KHRJ - Harnet Regional Jetport in Erwin, NC
    KTDF - Person County Airport in Roxboro, NC
