Erik Flying

Every year our local airport has an Airport Awareness Day, of which the highlight always is the Young Eagles program. The Young Eagles allow kids to fly for free with local volunteer pilots. Up till now, Erik had been too young, so he was super excited that he finally got to fly.


He has flown to The Netherlands twice when he was less than a year old, but strangely enough he has no recollection of those flights.


We made sure to make it to the airport early, since usually the free flights are very popular. We didn't have to wait long before Erik got paired with a pilot and two other boys and off they were.


He loved his flight and said he even got to fly the air plane which must have been very exciting.
