Hawkes Bay and East Coast Aero Club Young Eagles Programme.
Young Eagles coordinator and Club Committee member, Peter Steers, together with Club Instructor Cassandra Jeffries host our Young Eagles on the last Sunday of every month.
Ranging in age from 12 to 15 our young eagles are keen to learn about aviation and have an opportunity to take to the skies.
Meeting at the Aero Club, Young Eagles engage in ground lessons learning the fundamentals of flight, listen to guest speakers talk about a variety of aviation related topics, visit aviation related places and have the opportunity to fly with YE registered club pilots.
Money from their own fund raising efforts is pooled with any donations to provide official flying lessons for the Young Eagles- who all have their own log books.
We now have a Club Young Eagles cup to present to the Young Eagle who has strived, or is keen, towards being a good pilot. All their year’s work will go towards making them eligible for this and a mighty fine cup it is too.
