Seventy-two potential “Young Eagles,” age eight to 16, took to the skies at Morristown Regional Airport for a free introductory flight on Saturday, May 25.

Area residents brought their children to the weekend “fly-in” event. For those who want to learn to fly, the next step is to apply for a “Young Eagles Scholarship” through the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA).
