Smoky Hill EAA Chapter No. 1127 will host a Young Eagle Day Saturday Nov. 6, at the Ellsworth Airport. Young people age 8 to 17 are welcome to experience a demonstration flight in an airplane. The flights are provided free of charge to any youth wishing to participate. 

Registration for flights will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. (Note: due to COVID, registration will be in the hangar and masks are required.)

Each Young Eagle flight will be in a certified airplane flown by a licensed and experienced volunteer pilot representing the Smoky Hill EAA Chapter in Ellsworth.

Each youth must have a signed permission form from his or her parent/guardian. Forms are available from chapter members or may be filled out Saturday. Information is available by calling area members Larry Farmer, 785-825-1256, or Dale Weinhold, 785-472-4309.
