On the first Saturday of every month, the EAA Chapter 723 offers free plane rides for Camarillo kids directly from Camarillo Airport.  Just last year, almost 66,000 young “Eagles” were flown over local neighborhoods across the country absolutely free courtesy of the EAA.  To date, more than 1,900,000 have taken flight since the program first started up back in 1992.  This is your child’s chance to get an up close look at what it takes to pilot a plane, including pre-flight safety checks of the exterior and interior of the plane, reviewing aeronautical charts and an explanation of the instrument panel.

Each one of the free plane rides for Camarillo kids lasts anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes.  Your child may even be allowed to take the controls while in flight…with the pilot’s close supervision, of course.  Once they arrive back on the ground, the pilot will be more than happy to answer all your child’s questions, including what type of plane they are flying and the rules of flying in general.  Each child participating in the program will receive their very own logbook with an activation code that gives them free access to an EAA Student Membership.

All interested parties must pre-register online at the EAA Chapter 723 website.  If you miss tomorrow’s free plane rides for Camarillo kids, the next one will be available on February 7th.  Let your child experience something truly unique.  Register them for a free plane ride today!
