Chapter 1114 planning for 2020 rallies:
Young Eagles volunteers will begin planning for 2020 in January, 2020.
Other local EAA chapters will also be planning Young Eagles rallies for 2020. As that information becomes available we will post it here.
All rallies are dependent on weather and pilot/aircraft availability. You can get more information by emailing Bob Cassell at . Note: There is to the number of rallies in which a youth may participate.
Preregistration is highly recommended, but not required. Go to https://youngeaglesday.com/, find our rally and preregister your child. (Note: all Chapter 1114 rallies will be listed on this site with registration opening 90 days prior to each rally date.) A parent or legal guardian must accompany their child to the rally and sign a form giving permission for the flight.
Our Young Eagles Coordinator volunteer is Bob Cassell. If you have any questions about the program, you can contact him by email at YoungEagles@eaa1114.org.
Founded in 1992, the Young Eagles program has dedicated over 25 years to giving youth ages 8–17 their first free ride in an airplane. It’s the only program of its kind, with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation. If you have a child that is interested in aviation and a free airplane ride, fill out a YE Interest Response and we'll put you on the list and let you know when we have an upcoming rally or feel free to contact Bob directly (see above).
EAA Chapter 1114 has been honored by the national EAA leadership as one of the top 25 Chapters for Young Eagles flights. We've been flying kids for 25 years and, with over 17,000 kids flown, we are ranked the number two chapter in the world!

If you would like to volunteer and get involved with this very worthwhile activity, it takes a number of pilot and non-pilot people to staff a rally. There is a lot of information on the national EAA site. Click here for more information. The events listing on the national website will show Young Eagles events across all North America.
For our Young Eagle volunteers and pilots, remember that you do not have to be part of an organized rally to fly Young Eagles. You can get the necessary participant forms, logbooks and certificates from Bob or directly from eaa.org online. 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.
