Young Eagles to fly

The museum has reached its quota of young people who will have an opportunity to experience their first flight in a general aviation airplane in May when the Yakima chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) offers Young Eagles flights. The EAA chapter said it would accept up to 20 children registered in advance through the museum. Twenty have signed up, and a few more names are on a backup list.

Flights will launch from the museum ramp on May 10. The program will run from 9 a.m. to noon.

The Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8-17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers. Most Young Eagle flights last between 15 and 20 minutes.

Yard sale scheduled

Do you have items at home that you no longer have any use for and want them to find a good new home? You could donate them to the museum for our annual (mostly) yard sale. The sale is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 17. We can use just about anything – with some exceptions – you care to donate. We don’t want any clothing, computers or TV sets.  Donations can be brought to the museum Thursdays and Fridays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
