Final preparations are underway for our first Young Eagles Rally! We are planning to fly youths ages 8-17. Pilots and ground support are still needed! Ahead of the rally we will meet on Friday May 5 at 5:00 pm to set up. Volunteers are needed to set up for the event on Friday, help during the event Saturday, and help tear down after the event on Saturday afternoon. Saturday’s activities will start at 8:00 am, with flying starting at about 9:00 am. This is an “all hands on deck” event for our chapter. Please contact Mike Land at 224.308.2610 or email at email@example.com to sign up to help. Thanks to everyone who will be helping with this event.
Last year we had 68 kids take their first introductory flights. We should have at least as many this year. Ground volunteers will do marshalling of planes and crowd controls on the ramp, and help pilots load the kids into the planes. We will also have flight simulators available for the kids to use, and food and drinks will be available.
Registration of pilots and volunteers will be done online. For a video of the sign-up process, click this link, and see the video on the top right. . If you are able assist on the ramp with marshalling, please click this video. Prior to the event, a notification will be sent out to you. On the day of the event, we will sign in electronically during the pilot orientation at 8:00.
