School Programs

As you can see from the picture, for decades children have been visiting McAllister. Each year hundreds of kids go through the museum .

We work with the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) Young Eagles program which gives young people 8 – 17 years of age the experience of basic ground instruction and a free airplane ride. The cost of the fuel, the use of the aircraft, and the piloting are all donated by local, civic-minded, private pilots. The Young Eagles program was originally offered only once a year but, is now offered year round. Participation must start with a personal visit to the museum for sign-up and making necessary arrangements.

We wish to acknowledge and give credit to the volunteers who, in the spirit of community service, make all these activities and resources available.
