Quote from: OldGuy on October 20, 2019, 05:20:45 pmA close relationship between the EAA Young Eagles coordinator and your PAO and R and R team can pay gigantic dividends!
Quote from: redfire122 on October 27, 2019, 11:36:05 pmI also am EAA & CAP. Whenever I give an o-flight I hand out a young eagle form. That way the cadet gets the free Sporty's ground school and other benefits. Its like giving away $200. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Quote from: xray328 on October 19, 2019, 07:15:50 pmI 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.
Quote from: TheSkyHornet on December 02, 2019, 02:07:34 pmAre the Young Eagles flights an operational familiarization (i.e., introductory) flight, or an instructional flight like CAP's O-Flights? Obviously, CAP's flights aren't legal instructions (the seated cadet isn't logging time).

Are there really no other requirements? Seems odd given CAP's requirements for Orientation Flight Pilots.Private Pilot age is 17, not 16. Altho the minimum criteria is a PPL, each EAA chapter that conducts YE flights may require more stringent limits. I'm a member of an EAA chapter that requires a minimum of 200 hours AFTER the private and an interview with the YE coordinator. But I'm not a CAP pilot - too much overhead and absurdity with paperwork and if you're not a member of "the old boys club"......besides, I own an airplane so I don't need to use CAP to get flight time.As for insurance, Young Eagle rides have 2 levels - first is EAA then the individual pilot's policy. You'd be surprised at the paperwork we have to go thru for a YE Rallye.The ORide is a well-defined syllabus, as opposed to a YE flight which each chapter can define as it chooses. Our EAA chapter has a one-flight, one Young Eagle....we don't load up the airplane with 3 kids and do the pattern. Not only that, but we make sure the YE has hands-on time. Since I have a 4 seater, I often get a parent in the back. One day I'm going to mount a camera pointing to the back seat so when I hand the controls to the YE, and tell the parent I'm not touching the controls, the YE can have a photo of the sheer panic on the parent's face!

No.Of course nothing stops them from signing out of the CAP part of the activity and taking a flight, then signing back in, same as if they went to lunch.Frankly I don't see any real reason they could not fly in an EAA plane in uniform, but why leabe it gray should something happen.As to a 60-80? Absolutely not. You want zero implication that flight or plane has anything to do with CAP.Flying in a non-CAP plane is decidedly a non-CAP activity.
Quote from: Eclipse on December 09, 2019, 04:43:53 pmBy virtue of it >not< being an approved activity. You can't really prove the negative.
QuoteA B-17 flight would require approval by whatever process the respective wing requires - in that case since it would not presumably be free, Wing or higher would have to sign the contract for the flight anyway.
QuoteBut I would see it as really important to make it clear those flights are in no way connected to CAP.
