The pilots who are participating in teh Young Eagles program are local members of the EAA who are volunteering their time and aircraft to make your child's flight possible. Each Young Eagles pilot is licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and all the aircraft utilized are also registered by the FAA.   The flight will be conducted according to the federal regulations.  In addition, no aerobatic maneuvers will be performed.
