Young Eagles Program in Malaysia
The YEP in Malaysia commenced acitivities in 1993 by conducting
several Flight Rallies in and around Kuala Lumpur. To date, more
than 600 Malaysian children from the age group of 8-18 have been
given an opportunity to undertake a discovery flight with members
of EAA Malaysia.
To take this program a step further, EAA Malaysia conducted its
first "Young Eagles Youth Adventure Camp" at a picturesque
grass airfield in Ulu Bernam lower Perak. This five-day Camp saw
80 boys and girls camping out at the airfield and undertaking
a variety of interesting tasks connected with aviation. Highlights
of the camp included being taken for two familiarization flights
and a one-hour cross-country flight. Several other camps of a
similar nature have been held to date.
