    Despite less than ideal weather, EAA 582 flew a total of 135 young eagles!

    Jean-Marie Deschamps - 11

    Jack Milner - 12

    Zach Cheema - 12

    Don Coburn - 14

    Jay Treat - 27

    Rich Naves - 27

    Steve Cechner - 32

    With TPS's 36 flights earlier this year, that brings the 2018 total to 171 thus far!

    These introductory style flights (not mere rides) would not be possible without the faithful ground crew - Hank Povolny, Abby Tabbert, Riley Kepling, Joe Priebe and Jim Wurst.

    If you haven't volunteered to be part of this experience - seeing kids totally transformed by an experience like no other - you should; it's very unique! Your next chance will be at our Plane Fun Festival this June 16th and 17th (Father's Day weekend).

    For any volunteers this past weekend, feel free to sound off on this discussion and share your special moments in hopes that the rest of us will understand what the Young Eagle volunteer experience is like.
