Milestones in Flight
On June 25, 2014 EAA Chapter 579 reached a major milestone when it reached the 16,000th Young Eagle flown by the chapter. The chapter has taught students about general aviation for 24 years, including the 22 years since the start of the Young Eagles program. Chapter 579 has also flown more Young Eagles than any other EAA chapter.
The log book has information on how to sign up for a free EAA student membership and a free aviation ground school. Once a Young Eagle passes the FAA written test, the cost of the test will be reimbursed and a voucher will be issued for 1 hour of flight training.
