NASHUA – Local Experimental Aircraft Association pilots will host a Young Eagles Flight Rally on Saturday at Nashua’s Boire Field, volunteering their time to take children and youths ages 8-17 into the skies.

The event, for which the rain date is Sunday, is one of several activities organized by the Young Eagles program to get young people interested in aviation.

Registration starts at 10 a.m. at Infinity Aviation, 117 Perimeter Road. Flights will go on until 1 p.m., on a first-come, first-served basis. A parent or guardian must accompany the child or youth and sign a release.

Since the program was launched in 1992, volunteer EAA pilots have flown more than 1.3 million young people from across the U.S. and more than 90 other nations. Kids and their families are also invited to talk to the pilots to learn more about their aircraft and the program itself.

Each young participant will receive a “Young Eagle” certificate, and their names will be entered into a logbook that’s hailed as the world’s largest and is on display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wis.
