Drive to 1.25!
another major milestone on the horizon for the Young Eagles
program -- Young Eagle 1.25 million! That's right, one
and a quarter million Young Eagles! With
your help, we will reach that milestone BEFORE EAA
AirVenture 2006 giving us a chance to join together in a
celebration at Oshkosh. Reaching that mark before AirVenture
is possible, but will require a little extra effort from all
of us. To help motivate you and your fellow volunteers to
fly a few extra Young Eagles this spring, we will have an
opportunity for participating pilots and ground crews to be
recognized in the next few months. Those who participate in
the program will have a chance to win some valuable prizes.
In addition, the pilot who flies Young Eagle 1.25 million
will receive a VIP trip to AirVenture— including hotel
accommodations --- a flight in the B-17 and more.
10 is International Young Eagles Day. Make sure your
event is listed on the Web site by filing the Rally
Notice Form. Also check the main Volunteer
page for resources to help make your event a
success. There's a flight rally planner,
certificate printing programs, a sample news release and
event checklist, weather links and more. Make
sure you share your IYED stories, too!
