Museum Hosts Young Eagle Flights for Scout Troop

The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum hosted Young Eagle Flights at St. Louis Downtown Airport today.  Members of a local Boy Scout troop received their Young Eagle flights in one of two Cessna 172s or an Aviat Husky provided by members of EAA Chapter 64.  The “East Side Chapter” provides regular opportunities for local youth to experience a flight around the St. Louis riverfront in general aviation aircraft, and local Scout troops frequently credit the flight and museum activities toward the achievement of the Aviation Merit Badge.  Benefits of the EAA Young Eagles program include, without cost: first Young Eagles flight, EAA Student Membership, Sporty’s Pilot Shop online flight training program, first introductory flight lesson and availability of flight training scholarships.  For more information about the Young Eagles program in the St. Louis area, contact EAA Chapter 64 at http://eaa64.org/ye.htm.  Here are some views of today’s flights:
