Young Eagles

Palmetto Sport Aviation (EAA Chapter 242) participates in the national Young Eagles program gives young people ages 8-17 a FREE introductory experience in general aviation which includes a 20 minute flight with a local volunteer pilot.  Since 1993 EAA Chapter 242 has flown over 10,000 Young Eagles!  We are also striving to provide more and more ground activities to further enrich the visit to the airport and the chapter.

EAA Chapter 242 History

EAA Chapter 242, based at Jim Hamilton-LB Owens Airport (KCUB) in downtown Columbia, South Carolina, is the local chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), having served the area’s aviation community since 1965. Members fly, build & talk airplanes, and just have fun hanging out at the hangars and the well equipped clubroom.

Come join the fun.
