Chapter 579 participates in the EAA Aviation Foundation's Young Eagle program by hosting numerous flight rallies each year, spring through fall. To date, over 16,000 Young Eagles have been flown by Chapter 579 pilots. We host open rallies at the Sugar Grove Fire House between April and October, typically on the 4th Sunday of selected months, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Our members have also conducted a number of special Young Eagle events to support local organizations, such as church youth groups and the scouts, outside of the open rallies. No matter when it is though, the pilots and the participants appreciate the professionalism and pure fun that is typical of a Chapter 579 flight rally.
