What is Flying Start from EAA?

Flying Start is an EAA program for chapters to provide a pathway to people in the local community who are interested in the world of flight. 
Through Flying Start, chapters members and local flight instructors will break down the barriers commonly encountered b the non-aviation community that prevents people from becoming a pilot. Flying Start participants will walk away from the event with an, “I can do this” point of view, a clear understanding of how fling can fit into their lives, and a good idea of what they can do with this hobby. 
Participating individuals will be provided with a pathway to get involved with their local EAA chapter, the opportunity to continue their interest in flying, and the change to start new friendships based on a shared love of aviation with the potential goal of becoming a pilot.
Flying Start participants will have direct access to the EAA Eagle Flights program through the hosting chapter. The EAA Eagle Flights program will continue to mentor participating adults and help them become pilots.
