“Young Eagles” get free plane rides at the La Crosse Regional Airport

EAA Chapter 307 volunteers planes and pilots

Young Eagles from Chapter 307 of the Experimental Aircraft Association received a plane ride on Wednesday, and for many of the kids, it was their first time.

The Young Eagles program gives aviation enthusiasts, from age 8 through 17 an opportunity to fly in an aviation aircraft.

These flights are offered by E-A-A members who volunteer their aircraft, and their time.
