David Miller Memorial Scholarship Presentations

EAA 1358 awarded our David Miller Memorial Scholarships to Auburn Aviation Camp.  The recipients of these scholarships were Young Eagle Dawsen Hughes and Young Eagle William Parker.  They will fly to Auburn Aviation Camp on Sunday, June 17th and return home on Friday, June 22nd with two of our Chapter’s Young Eagle pilots. 
CONGRATULATIONS DAWSEN & WILLIAM!

Southeast World of Work

For the third year, EAA Chapter 1358 has supported the Southeast Worlds of Works event at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds by having a Young Eagle booth to encourage youngsters to get active in aviation.  This year President Ray Carney, Young Eagle Coordinator Alison Denham, and members Larry Turnage, Hugh Wheelless,
Jr., and Bill Castlen spoke with innumerable youngsters about the program.  

We really went “hi-tech” this year with a QR code that youngsters could scan with their smart phones and go directly to our web site page to sign up for a Young Eagle flight.  This has resulted in getting over 25 youngsters querying our web site about Young Eagle Flights.  We will report in future eNewsletters the fruits of this effort.

Latest Young Eagle Flights

On Saturday, March 3rh, we had a great day today flying Young Eagles, and had perfect weather. A total of seven youngsters signed up for flights, and at least three of them asserted that they want to learn to fly.
