What’s a Young Eagles flight like?

  • On the ground: your pilot will explain what will happen during the flight. You’ll talk about the aeroplane, review an aeronautical chart (or map), and complete a careful “walk-around” preflight inspection of the aircraft
  • Just before take off: your pilot will help you to buckle your seat belt and describe the interior of the aircraft, including the instrument panel
  • In the air: the flight will probably last between 15 and 20 minutes. And, if you want, your pilot may let you take the controls!
  • Back on the ground: there’s more time for you to ask questions about the flight. Your pilot will be happy to tell you more about flying and his or her particular aeroplane.
