The Future Farmers of America/4H Career Day-Young Eagles Event is scheduled for January 12th, 2019 at 0900 at the Belle Glade Airport. This function is designed to draw young folks of 8-17 years old to experience flight and be exposed to the “movers and shakers” in Agribusiness. The objective is to enlighten the youth in the agricultural areas as to the opportunities they might expect after being educated in the agricultural sciences. This has been a huge success the past couple years due to the participation of FFA-4H and the public school ag programs. By offering airplane rides we hope to draw young folks in from all around the agricultural area to be exposed to the leaders in SoFla agribusiness. EAA's Young Eagle program provides support for this function in terms of insurance and manpower. The Florida Cub Flyers, Florida Antique Biplane Association and OFFC will supply the pilots and airplanes.
