YOUNG EAGLES TAKE TO THE AIR

If you looked up this past weekend and thought there were more planes in the air than usual, you were right. The Young Eagles, a group of young adults interested in aviation, took to the skies. Several volunteers offered their services as pilots, and their aircraft, to fly these young aviators about the Greenville area. Forty-one young people took the opportunity to fly with one of the eight pilots and seven aircraft. While the pilots waited for their chance to fly, Karl Allen, an American Airlines pilot, discussed aviation career possibilities, and how important education is for all careers. Captain Andrea Wall, a helicopter instructor from HeliSat, talked about various helicopters and how much fun flying and aviation are in general. Many of the local members of the Greenville Pilots Association were on hand to help with the event and pilot aircraft. The local parachute club discussed their love of jumping, and the remote control pilots showed off their model aircraft and discussed how much fun they are to fly.
