EAA Chapter 106 Hosting Event At George Harlow/Marshfield
Young people ages 8-17 in east-central Massachusetts will have
a chance to experience flight Sunday, May 15th, as EAA Chapter 106
hosts a Young Eagles Flight Rally at George Harlow/Marshfield
Municipal Airport (KGHG).
The rally is part of the EAA Young Eagles Program, which since
its launch in 1992 has seen volunteer EAA pilots share a flight
with more than 1.5 million young people in over than 90 countries.
"Free airplane rides are just part of the Flight Rally," said
Walsh, spokesman for the event. "We hope to build one-to-one
relationships between pilots and young people, giving a new
generation a chance to learn more about the possibilities that
exist in the world of General Aviation."
Pilots at the event will also explain more about their airplanes
allowing young people to discover how airplanes work and how pilots
ensure that safety is the prime concern before every flight.
Following the flight, each young person, will receive a certificate
making them an official Young Eagle and many will have their FAA
approved logbook filled out by the pilot. Their name will then be
entered into the "World's Largest Logbook," which is on permanent
display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, WI. The Logbook
is also accessible on the
Internet. Parental or Guardian signed approval
must be made on approved documentation before the event or at the
Along with flight rallies, EAA members also fly Young Eagles on
an individual basis. Each pilot volunteers their time and aircraft
so the flights can be provided free of charge for interested young
people. Those attending the flight rally on May 15th are asked come
to Shoreline Aviation at Marshfield Municipal Airport starting at
0900 EDT to register, and flying will begin at 1000. Registration
will close at 1400.
