EAA Youth Programme


Our aim is to promote aviation and allow students to explore career goals and make informed decisions related to their post secondary education, which will assist them in taking that next step towards a particular career in aviation.

The programme aims to better engage scholars at many levels with parental, school and flying schools participation and support. The programme will enhance their secondary school experience, allowing students to explore interests and career goals thus leading to a more fulfilling schooling experience.

Aviation Training

The first step is getting kids to the local airfield and introducing them to flying and the world of aviation, for this reason we cannot operate alone and need the participation of parents, volunteers and flights school to further encourage young people to consider flying and aviation careers.

The Young Eagles programme is structured to help students gain confidence in their ability to succeed and see the connections between their studies and aviation careers.
