Flight Line Operations

  Who are the people wearing the orange shirts?

  • Flight Line Operations. They are EAA volunteers responsible for keeping everything running smoothly and ensuring everyone remains safe once the Young Eagles enter the aircraft movement area.

  Can I go to the plane with my child to take pictures?

  • To promote safety, we ask that all parents stay on the outside of the fence. We have photographers who will take a picture of your child with the plane and pilot. These pictures will be provided to the Young Eagle following the flight.

  Can I take picture from outside of the fence?

  • Yes, please feel free to take as many pictures as you would like.

  Can I ask the Flight Line Operations team questions?

  • Yes. Their first job is to ensure safe operation in the aircraft movement area, but if someone is not busy, they are usually happy to answer any questions you may have.
