10 Criteria To Participate In Young Eagle Flights Be disciplined and be able to follow instructions Submit PATH package prior to flight Be courteous and be on “Best Behavior”. Understand that the flight is a very special privilege and not a right. Must be dedicated to academic program in school, as evidenced by attention, homework and discipline and verified by teacher. Understand that unless instructions are followed exactly both on the ground and in the air, the person will not be allowed to fly or the flight will be stopped immediately. Sit quietly and do not touch anything unless told to do so by the pilot. Do not do anything to distract the pilot during critical stages of flight operations, especially during takeoff and landing. Understand that the pilot flying the young person is volunteering his/her time, aircraft and the cost of fuel. The pilot wants to help give the young person a very special experience and is no way required to fly the young person. Understand that although we will do our best to fly all those approved, if conditions are unsafe, we will cancel the flights. The issues could include problems with the aircraft, weather deterioration, pilot fatigue, etc. Efforts will then be made, but no guarantees given, to reschedule the flight.
