Flying Start & Eagle Flights

Want to learn how to fly but do not know where to start?  Do you have questions about learning how to fly?  Or are you simply interested in getting more information about learning to fly?  If so please come check out our Flying Start program. EAA 179 presents these programs when we have received interest from enough participants to schedule an event.

This program is designed to show you various ways to learn how to start flying, introduce you to other pilots, students, instructors, and schools.  We will also discuss the opportunities you will have after completing flight training.  Not just for airplanes but also for Light Sport (LSA), rotor wing, gliders, and Trikes.

For more information from EAA, check out “Flying Start” and “Eagle Flights“, or download the .PDF file on the right.

If you are interested in attending an EAA 179 Flying Start event, please send your inquiry via eMail to and we will contact you with dates and location for when you are invited to “Come Fly with Us!’’
