Young Eagles Day, 7 September 2013 – Subang Airport

In Flight Log, Social Life on September 8, 2013 at 8:14 pm

More than 60 children became Young Eagles this weekend.

Much has been written about the lifelong passion that many pilots have for aviation and how this passion was ignited by this one flight when the pilot was still a small child.  Even more has been written about the need and the pleasure to give back to the community what we have received from aviation over the years.  The Young Eagles Day organized by the Malaysian chapter of the EAA (Captain Siva and his crew) was a rare occasion at which we could do both.  The EAA invited children from Community Children Homes and anybody who wanted to come along.  The response was overwhelming and while I didn’t count, I am sure we had close to 70 kids.  (see picture gallery here) Read the rest of this entry »

EAA Malaysia is organizing an aviation day for underprivileged children at Subang Airport on Saturday, 7 September 2013. I will fly to Subang on Friday morning to help out. The main attraction of the day for the kids will be the flight with one of the participating aircraft.  The event will go from 0900 am to 1800.  The young pilots will get a certificate and I believe there will also be an opportunity to visit the control tower and fly an airplane in a simulator.

I thought it would be nice to take pictures of the kids in the airplane and share it with them later. If anybody wants to join me to help with the pictures and the safety around the airplane, let me know. You would need to be at Seletar on Friday morning around 9 am.  I am coming back on Sunday morning.
