Young Eagles take flight on Saturday

BULLHEAD CITY — Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport will host the 2019 EAA Young Eagles Day, offering free flights for youth between the ages of 8 and 17, from 9 a.m.  to noon Saturday.

Flights will originate from Signature Flight Support, 2550 Laughlin View Drive, next to the airport main building.

“A free ride can be the first step to inspire a career in aviation, which is the mission of the Young Eagle program,” said Jeremy Keating, LBIA airport director. “Our goal this year is to take at least 100 youngsters on a flight.”

The free flights are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers. The airport is currently looking for local businesses and organizations to sponsor a “Young Eagle”. To sponsor a Young Eagle, contact Shaun Kelly at 928-754-2134 or by email at Skelly@FlyIFP.com.

Since 1992, more than

2 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 43,000 volunteer pilots in the past 25 years.
