Young Eagles Flights

Young Eagles, a program created by the US Experimental Aircraft Association, was designed to
give children between the ages of 8 to 17 an opportunity to experience flight in a general
aviation airplane – and learn about the joy and opportunities of aircraft operation. Thanks to
volunteer pilots and on ground personnel, the priceless program is offered at no cost. And,
administrated by Seven Rivers Aviation, it’s offered at the Georgetown County Airport.
“Young Eagles strives to build relationships between aviation experts and impressionable young
minds,” says Barry Brock. A pilot himself, he is also the CEO of Seven Rivers Aviation. “We
want to give the upcoming generation a chance to know the feeling of flying and to learn more
about the industry’s career opportunities.”

Young Eagles is the only program of its kind. In little more than 25 years, more than two million
children in ninety countries have been inspired by the magic of flying.
