Adventures for Youth in Aviation

Launched in 1992, the Young Eagles program has dedicated 30 years to giving youth ages 8–17 their first free ride in an airplane. It’s the only program of its kind, with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation.

United is proud to be the official airline partner of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)’s youth education programs via Aviate. Together they are opening doors for young aviators worldwide to foster their passion and reach their aspirations.

The program is centered around the students building an actual, flying two seat experimental aircraft under the supervision and mentoring of our program mentors, with the basic philosophy being mentors teach, students build. The Teen Aviation of NJ conducts weekly sessions at the Flying W Airport in Medford, New Jersey

“The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who, in their grueling travels across trackless lands in prehistoric times, looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space, at full speed, above all obstacles, on the infinite highway of the air.”
– Wilbur Wright
