EAA 64 and Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum Host Boy Scouts, Give Young Eagle Flights

EAA Chapter 64 and the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum hosted over 120 local area Boy Scouts at St. Louis Downtown Airport on Saturday.  The Scouts received Young Eagle flights from EAA pilots flying five airplanes – a Piper Tripacer, 2 Cessna 172s, a Mooney M22 and a Piper Cherokee – and an R-44 Raven II helicopter from Central Illinois Air.  The day-long event also included a tour of the museum, a presentation on careers in aviation by members of the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Command, and a tour of Parks College pilot training facility also located on the airport.  EAA 64 and the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum provide flights and educational programs for large and small groups regularly throughout the spring, summer and fall.  For more information, please visit EAA Chapter 64 at http://eaa64.org/index.htm and the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum at http://airandspacemuseum.org/.  Here are some scenes from Saturday’s events:
