Young Eagles Flight Program in Eastman

Kids Become Young Eagles Recently, three Dodge County middle schoolers became the first Young Eagles at the Heart of Georgia Regional Airport. Ryan Clements, Ethan Gonzales, and Aiden Greer participated in the program new to Dodge County and coordinated by Charlie Spratt from Middle Georgia College Aviation College.

The Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8 - 17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers. Since 1992, more than 1.6 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight through the program. Young Eagles have been registered in more than 90 different countries and have been flown by more than 42,000 volunteer pilots.
