Last weekend Spring was ushered in with a Young Eagles Fly-in at Haller's Airfield.
The EAA's Young Eagles program, gives kids 8 yrs to 17 yrs old a chance to fly in a private airplane, and experience what it's like to fly.
Our local chapter puts the event on once a year and the chapter furnishes the pilots, the airplanes, certificates and lunch.
This was Devon's second time out for the Young Eagles event.
In all we had 35 young aviators and they were flown by:
Jimmie Seeley flying a Celebrity biwing,
Diz Gillespie flying a RV
Pat Lee flying a RV
Sam Staton flying a Tri Pacer
Bob Weisman flying a Cessna Cardinal
Frank Lorenz flying a J-3 Cub
Dave Dollarhyde flying a RV
Paul Saulter and his Mom handled all the paperwork and photos of the kids with their certificates.
To many to list served as support staff, driving the cart, manning the flight line, ground crew, sign-in and food.
Our thanks to so many for all the hard work!!
See you next year.
