EAA AND LEARNING FOR LIFE SIGN AVIATION AGREEMENT
EAA President/CEO Rod Hightower and Dr. Diane Thornton,
national director for Learning for Life, sign a memorandum of
understanding to create joint aviation opportunities for youth.
EAA’S YOUNG EAGLES PROGRAM, the world’s largest youth aviation education initiative,

Scouts of America, have entered into an agreement that will help young people discover
