EAA 64 and The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum Provide Young Eagle Flights for Scout Troops

By Carmelo Turdo
EAA Chapter 64 and the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum hosted over 120 local area Boy Scouts at St. Louis Downtown Airport on Saturday.  The Scouts received Young Eagle flights from EAA pilots flying five airplanes - a Piper Tripacer, 2 Cessna 172s, a Mooney M22 and a Piper Cherokee - and an R-44 Raven II helicopter from Central Illinois Air.  The day-long event also included a tour of the museum, a presentation on careers in aviation by members of the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Command, and a tour of Parks College pilot training facility also located on the airport.  EAA 64 and the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum provide flights and educational programs for large and small groups regularly throughout the spring, summer and fall.  For more information, please visit EAA Chapter 64 at and the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum at  Here are some scenes from Saturday's events:
