For years now I have worked to promote aviation to young people. I’ve gone to school career days, gotten kids involved with the Civil Air Patrol and even taken my nephews up for their first introductory flights when they turned 13. One of them went on to get his pilot’s license and fly for the marine corps.
Aviation has given a lot to me so I am giving it back. The EAA’s Young Eagles program is one of the best at introducing the next generation to the wonders of flight. They will receive 10% of the royalties I receive from sales of my book, Air to Ground, for at least the next five years.
If you love aviation, I encourage you to pass that love along. Give to the Young Eagles and watch them Soar!
