Benton airport hosts Young Eagle flights for children

Bring the kids. Volunteer pilots who are members of the Experimental Aircraft Association will be giving free airplane rides to children this Saturday as part of EAA’s Young Eagle’s program. The program was designed to expose children ages 8 to 17 to general aviation.

The pilots donate their skills, planes, time and fuel.

Flights will run from 9 a.m. to noon at the Benton Stearman Airpark. The Scouts will be hosting a pancake breakfast in the morning as well.
