EAA Flying Start is a new program that provides EAA chapters with an opportunity to reach out into the local community and bring those interested in aviation to the airport for a first-hand look at the wonders of flight.
The program consists of an EAA-prepared presentation and video that provide information about topics ranging from what is involved in flight training and the types of certificates one can pursue, to how much it will cost in both time and money. Local flight training organizations will be present to provide an overview of their facilities and flight training programs in the Reno area.
After the presentation, Flying Start attendees can experience aviation first-hand with a free introductory Eagle Flight provided by an EAA volunteer pilot. Attendees will also be offered a free six-month EAA membership, and a corresponding six-month EAA Chapter 1361 membership.
