Free flights for kids!
On Saturday, August 27 GFCA will host a Young Eagles Day at Gnoss Field, giving free airplane rides to kids ages 8 to 18. The Young Eagles program was launched in 1990 with the goal of giving 1 million kids a flight in a general aviation airplane by the turn of the century, and to date over 2.6 million kids ages 8 to 18 have been flown. Our chapter at Gnoss Field has flown over 1,000 Young Eagles in the past 18 years, and we enjoy the experience as much as the kids do!
These flights are absolutely free and are given by highly experience volunteer pilots in their personal planes.
For more information and to pre-register your Young Eagles (space is limited, so pre-registration is required), visit the Young Eagles Day website:
