Chapter 234 holds monthly Young Eagles Club meetings to introduce young people ages 12–16 to aviation and STEM-related activities.
The club teaches them the principles of flight, navigation, airplane and airport terminology, airspace and air traffic control through hands-on activities such as aircraft builds, visits to aviation-related facilities and flight simulator sessions.
Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA provides up to $10,000 to deserving young adults for their flight training expenses, totaling nearly $1,200,000 in scholarships annually.
Each year, our chapter supports one scholar, between the ages of 16 and 19, in the form of funding and mentorship to help them earn their pilot certificate.
Ray Aviation Scholarship Fund applicants are engaged, excited and motivated aspiring pilots.
Additional consideration will be given to candidates who are former Young Eagles, EAA student members and actively participating in the EAA Flight Plan, specifically the Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course.
