Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

EAA Young Eagles Flight Program information

Young Eagles Flight Plan: A Guide to the Left Seat

EAA has announced the Young Eagles Flight Plan, which has developed a number of new programs to encourage young people to consider flying and aviation careers. Key elements include the Young Eagles Flight, Sporty's online Next Step Program, a free First Flight Lesson, flight training scholarships and awards, and a free EAA Student Membership.

After completing a Young Eagles Flight, you'll have access to the Sporty's Complete Pilot Training Course. This course is the Next Step in the Flight Plan and a great way to begin your aviation education. (Recommended for ages 13 and older.) The course is a $215 value and is offered free from Sporty's Pilot Shop.

Once you have completed part one (the recreational pilot course) of the Sporty's program, you'll receive a voucher from EAA for a free First Flight Lesson at a flight school of your choice. (You must be between ages 14 and 19 to qualify.) This $120 value is underwritten by Global Aerospace and the Jim and Angela Thompson Foundation.

When you finish the Sporty's program, you'll be eligible to apply for funds to be used for flight training. These $1,500 flight awards and $7,500 flight scholarships are paid to your flight school to further your flight training. (You must be between ages 16 and 20 to qualify.) These flight awards and scholarships are underwritten by Rolls-Royce and the Harrison Ford Scholarship Fund at EAA.

Beginning in late October 2010, all Young Eagles will be offered a free EAA Student Membership. This membership will be valid until your 19th birthday and will include a membership card, e-newsletters, member discounts, and an electronic version of Sport Aviation. The EAA Student Membership is presented by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. More information will appear in the near future at www.YoungEagles.org.
