Since 1992, more than 1.9 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight from EAA’s network of volunteer pilots. For many, it was the start of their journey to becoming a pilot, aircraft mechanic, air traffic controller, or many other career possibilities.
Kids between the ages of 8 and 17 looking to experience the freedom of flight can register to attend Kids Fly Free scheduled for May, 2016, at Witham Field Airport in Stuart, Florida.
Ron Rowars, a personal injury attorney in Port St. Lucie, and an experienced pilot, is participating in this year’s event, which will cover key issues such as:
On the ground: The pilot explains what will happen during the flight. He may talk about the airplane, review an aeronautical chart (or map), and complete a careful “walk-around” preflight inspection of the airplane.
Just before takeoff: The pilot explains the interior of the airplane, including the operation of the aircraft door, safety belts, and instrument panel.
In the air: The flight lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. And, if desired, the pilot may hand over the controls!
Back on the ground: There’s more time to ask questions about the flight. The pilot is happy to explain more about flying and their particular airplane.
To all aspiring Young Eagles: This is a chance to experience the freedom of flight that many people only dream about!
The event, called Kids Fly Free, is for kids, aged 8 to 17, gives them an introduction to the freedom of flying during a 20 minute flight with qualifed pilots

When asked about the reasons behind creating this event, Rowars, a pilot and regular participant in the event, said:
“Our Young Eagles Kids Fly Free event is always a great success! Kids from all over the area have been thrilled with their introduction to flying and it has helped many young peoples’ aviation dreams take off. This five-step journey is designed to inspire young people and keep them flying after their Young Eagles flight.”
