News & Upcoming Events

Young Eagles in Los Alamos!

Local young people, ages 8 to 17 will have a chance to take to the skies in the morning of Saturday, October 14th as Northern New Mexico, Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 691 hosts a Young Eagles Flight Rally at the Los Alamos Airport (KLAM). If the weather doesn’t allow for flying on the planned date, the event will be held the following Saturday, October 21st.

The rally is part of the EAA Young Eagles Program created to interest young people in aviation. To date, the Program has flown more than 2 million children with the help of EAA’s network of volunteer pilots and ground crew. Pilots at the event will also explain more about their airplanes allowing young people to discover how airplanes work and how pilots ensure safety is the prime concern before every flight.

Following the flight, each participant will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. Their name will then be entered in the “World’s Largest Logbook” which is on permanent display at the EAA Aviation Museum in Oshkosh, WI. The logbook is also accessible at www.youngeagles.org.

Flight reservations can be made by sending the name and age of the interested Young Eagle via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Hourly flights will start at 8am and continue until noon. Reservations will be taken until all available flights are filled, with some opportunity for stand-by flights. More information about the event is available on the “EAA Chapter 691-Northern New Mexico” face book page.

This year, EAA celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Young Eagles Program and its mission to inspire the next generation of aviators. What started in 1992 as a program to introduce kids to flight has evolved into an aviation movement powered by the world’s largest volunteer air force.
