EAA Chapter 32 has been selected for the first stop of the Jeff Skiles Skycatcher Tour!!

Jeff is now a Co-Chairman for the EAA Young Eagles program. He will be bringing a Cessna Skycatcher to Smartt Field for our first Young Eagles event of the year, March 19, 2011. Jeff will arrive Friday, March 18 with the Skycatcher, followed by his chase crew. On Saturday, March 19, the St. Louis Young Eagles Rally, hosted by EAA Chapter 32 takes place with registration starting at 9:00 AM through noon. Young Eagle flights will continue through the day until the Young Eagles are flown or our pilots are exhausted. That afternoon, Jeff departs for his next stop in Lebanon, TN.   Please visit EAA 32 at
