More than 40 youngsters were able to enjoy free flights over Greene County Saturday thanks to the Experimental Aircraft Association's (EAA) Young Eagles program.

Young Eagles events, typically held locally twice per year in spring and fall, offer free, 20-minute flights to introduce children to general aviation, according to Sherry Hensley, a member of EAA who coordinates the events at the Greeneville-Greene County Municipal Airport.

A total of 41 young people enjoyed flights Saturday with eight volunteer pilots.

The pilots use their own personal aircraft, and donate their time and the majority of the fuel used.

Some fuel cost is reimbursed by Phillips 66, a national sponsor of the Young Eagles program.

The Young Eagles flights begin with an introduction to aircraft, as children are given an up-close look at the planes to learn about their different parts.

The young people are given the opportunity to ask any questions they may have about airplanes and flight.

Once in the planes, children are able to learn about the interior and control panel before taking off.
