Vine Grove Experimental Aircraft Association provides free flights for young aviators May 19

The Vine Grove Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association will provide free Young Eagle flights for youth ages 8 to 17 at the Vine Grove Airport May 19 — weather permitting.

Registration will take place at the airport 9-11:30 a.m. This is the first of six scheduled events for 2018, each occurring on the third Saturday of the month through September. A permission slip, properly authenticated by a biological or adoptive parent or legal guardian, is required and will be available at the airport.

The primary goal of the Young Eagle flight program is to introduce youngsters to the thrill of aviation, and to provide a memorable flying experience.

Each participant will be given a certificate signed by their pilot and world-renowned aerobatic pilot Sean Tucker, the National Young Eagle Chairman. Additionally, the youth’s name will be entered into the official Young Eagle Logbook, maintained by EAA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

For more information, call Dick Ardisson at (270) 319-1320.
