From education, safety, awareness, to helping out people in need, the YJFC and its members are actively involved in all aspects of aviation to the Georgia Tech and Greater Atlanta communities. Below are some examples of events we've hosted and participated in.
The YJFC also hosts numerous events open to the public. In addition, we host and invite specific organizations to promote aviation.
Member Supported Events
The YJFC announces opportunities and encourages its members to be involved in the aviation community. As such, some of them donate their time, money, and skills to those in need and to promote aviation.
EAA Young Eagle Flights
What better way to share the passion for aviation than taking 8 to 17 year olds for their first general aviation flight for free? This is a flight they'll surely never forget. Our members have flown Young Eagles with EAA Chs 690, 6, and others.
Our members donate their time, money, and skills to those most in need. From flying to the Gulf region after Hurricane Katrina and Houston after Hurricane Rita to provide help provide relief to those most affected, to flying passengers who needed urgent medical attention, we are proud our members give back to the community.
