As our EAA Chapter's Young Eagles Coordinator, I live or die by the generosity of our YE Pilot volunteers. I have heard feedback from them, both positive and negative.

The interesting thing is the negative feedback almost always is followed by a chuckle and a statement like, "I learned something today.".

The positive feedback is often quite effusive.

Frankly, it's this positive feedback that keeps me motivated to invest the labor hours required to organize an event.

Default A great day

Weather couldn't have been any better for our Chapter 1202 Young Eagles rally today @ KFVX Farmvile Va. We're not a very large chapter and certainly not young enough anymore either. We flew 37 quaffing kids and about 20 adults. The "WOW that was so cool/ so much fun " comments particularly from the somewhat reluctant participants as we taxi back to the ramp make all the efforts to keep this good will program alive & well.

Flew 3 Young Eagles this morning with the Boulder EAA Chapter. First time I?ve participated in more than 20 years. First time I?ve owned a multi-place airplane in 20 years!

A good time was had by all. Of course I used my Citabria, not the RV-3!

Planning to participate in the Chapter 515 (KFNL) Young Eagle?s Day next Saturday, too.

To all YE pilots, don?t forget to remind your kids that they can get free private pilot study materials from sportys. The order code is in there log book that they get after there flight. I all ways spend some fun time with the parents. Smiles galore. Turbo out.

Just completed the YE application, in the past I've to beg/borrow a headset (the wife and I use Clarity) when giving rides so looking for a recommendation for a decent reasonable priced headset for kids/young adults?

I'm the YE Coordinator for our chapter and I agree 100% on all you've said.
