|Harrison Ford: Promoting Aviation through Young Eagles|
In July 1992, Academy Award winning actor Cliff Robertson announced the launch of EAA’s Young Eagles program.
Ford, who is involved with an EAA chapter in Driggs, Idaho, just over the mountains from Jackson Hole, talks excitedly about the Young Eagles Day they held recently. “We flew 290 kids,” he said. “I had the pleasure of giving 43 kids a ride in my de Havilland Beaver. There’s no pleasure in the world that compares to seeing the excitement in a kid’s eyes when they get their first taste of general aviation. I haven’t been able to do it every year, because of work pressure, but those days are great days for me.”
