There were some unique aspects of Friday's activities. Several students were treated to flights in John and Elizabeth Schaefer's Cessna 305A/O-1 Bird Dog two-seat observation aircraft. Some students were flown in the Cessna 172 provided by a joint venture between AeroCareers and Wings of Hope for the purpose of promoting aviation through flight experiences. The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum, host to Young Eagle Flights throughout the year, provided exhibits of aircraft, engines, training equipment and even a restored F-4 Phantom II cockpit to enhance the learning experience.
Special recognition goes to EAA Chapter 64 Young Eagles Coordinator, Bob McDaniel, for yet another safe and enjoyable Young Eagles event.
