  • LEESBURG — The Villages Flying Club recently made a cash donation to the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 534 to promote aviation among young people in the area.

    The Villages Flying Club does not have a youth program, so their donation to EAA Chapter 534 recognizes the need to inspire kids and attract young people to the wonders of flight.

    Chapter 534 has an active Young Eagles program that flies kids ages 8 to 17 for their first general aviation flight and an Aviation Youth program that teaches young people to build and repair aircraft, as well as preparing them to complete the requirements for a private pilot’s license.
