I was surprised to learn that the EAA allows brand new pilots, as in 16 years old and just got their PPL yesterday,  fly kids for Young Eagle flights.  Are there really no other requirements?  Seems odd given CAP's requirements for Orientation Flight Pilots.

Youth Protection Course, background checks, proof of insurance, etc.

Plus the parents of the kids wanting to fly. They can always ask for a more experienced pilot.

Doesn't seem like much seat time with CAP wanting 200 hours PIC.

CAP is many things, but few can honestly question its conservative approach to flight ops, especially in regards to cadets.

Also, there are likely so few pilots under 21 who have the means to be Young Eagles pilots that the exceptions
are easily managed, especially when you consider that the pilot pays the gas, rents or owns the plane, and
has to cover the liability insurance, etc.

From the flights I did when I was younger there usually is a stark difference between Orides and EA flights too. All the Young eagle flights I did were essentially extended traffic patterns where an Oride could involve a cross country where more risk is involved and usually young eagles arenít allowed to touch the controls or fly per say like cadets on orides. But really it is The Who is the bottom line on the insurance individual pilot or the AF for orides.

A close relationship between the EAA Young Eagles coordinator and your PAO and R and R team can pay gigantic dividends!

I'm in CAP and EAA.  Anytime we schedule a Young Eagles day, we have CAP folks manning a CAP Booth, handing out brochures, STEM kit displays, etc.

I also am EAA & CAP. Whenever I give an o-flight I hand out a young eagle form. That way the cadet gets the free Sportyís ground school and other benefits. Its like giving away $200.

Cadets get the same deal with Sportys.

It has been available for at least 6 years.
