EAA Chapter 1268 offers these free Young Eagles rides at Sonoma Skypark every month on the second Sunday, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., weather permitting.
Young Eagle candidates should be accompanied by a parent or adult who can authorize the ride. Call the Sonoma Skypark office at 707.996.2100 for more information, and visit the Experimental Aircraft Association Young Eagles site to learn more about this wonderful program.
Rather than working to earn merit badges, members learn all aspects of aviation and gain experience that can help them pursue careers in the aviation industry. It’s a great opportunity for young people to make friends and learn valuable skills while exploring their interest in aviation.
Aviation Exploring is available for boys and girls ages 14–20. Post 1268 meets each month at Sonoma Skypark Airport, on the second Sunday of the month at 11:00 a.m.
For more information, or to confirm meeting time, contact the Sonoma Skypark office at 707.996.2100.
Experienced aviation instructors help campers delve into the world of aviation through classroom work, hands-on demonstrations, flight simulation, and other exciting activities.
Chapter 1268 gets a scholarship credit from EAA for each Young Eagles flight made by our volunteer pilots, with the rest of the funds coming from the proceeds of our Saturday BBQs and annual Family Fun Day.
