YOUNG EAGLES EVENT FOR JROTC CADETS MAY 20
We’ll be hosting 30-35 cadets from Novato High School’s Junior ROTC program for a Young Eagles’ day on May 20. This group is always fun: they’re excited, nervous, effusive and appreciative all at once. Think you might like to try it out and fly some Young Eagles? You do need to be an EAA National member to fly Young Eagles, but if you’re not already a member call (4153788504) or email me GnossAirport@gmail.com and I’ll get the information I need to set you up with a FREE six-month EAA membership. Even if you don’t want to fly or help out on the ground be sure to stop by and soak in some of the atmosphere, especially the cadets’ youthful enthusiasm.
