Charlie Derk reports on his FlyingThe10 Facebook page...
"Norma Jean is ready for the judges to stop by."
We now have set dates of September 19 and October 17 for our first Young Eagles Flight Rallies since 2019. We will require kids and pilots to be vaccinated to fly. Young Eagles WorkShops are now on the calendar. Eagle Flights are expected to be restarted soon as most pandemic restrictions are now just bad memories.
Chapter 501 offers free flights for ADULTS.
The program is called "Eagle Flights".
With pandemic restrictions eased, we have begun to get a
list of pilots ready to volunteer to host Eagle Flights.
If you think you have a pilot's license in your future,
you can go aloft with one of our pilots.
