The Mt. Vernon Airport was full of excited kids awaiting their FREE airplane rides with pilots, Keith Baumann and Bill Taylor, this morning.
Young Eagles is a program created by the US Experimental Aircraft Association designed to give children between the ages of 8 to 17 an opportunity to experience flight while being educated about aviation.
Keith has volunteered his time to fly a total of 538 children before today. Bill has also volunteered by flying around 150 youth.
Young Eagles is a great way to build excitement and knowledge in hopes of inspiring young people to explore the world of flight.
