Young Eagles Rally September 13, 2014
EAA Chapter 292 held our 2nd Young Eagle Rally of 2014 on September 13th. It was a tremendous success since the weather cooperated and eight pilots flew 61 Young Eagles. Over one-third had flown before and were excited to fly again. Hopefully introducing them several times will help keep their interest in aviation.
