Registration and flights will start at 8 a.m. and continue as long as the weather stays good, or until about noon. The free rides are part of the EAA’s Young Eagles program, in which volunteer pilots introduce youth ages eight through 17 to aviation by giving them free airplane rides. The Truckee chapter is returning to South Lake Tahoe again this year to hold this rally.
