WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Children, between the ages of 8-17, will now have the opportunity to have their heads in the clouds. On September 19 Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 227 is hosting a Young Eagles Flight Rally at the Waterloo Regional Airport.

Pilots volunteer their time and aircraft so the flights can be provided free of charge. They 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 child will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. They will also receive an access code for a complete free online Flight Training course offered by Sporty's.

Those attending the flight rally on Sept. 19 are asked to come to the Waterloo Regional Airport, Livingston Aviation, 2814 Betsworth Dr., between 8:00am – 12:00pm. Flights will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis. A parent or legal guardian must be present.
