Several pilots volunteered to take young aviation enthusiasts flying for an aviation day at the Kern Valley Airport in California. “I remember when I was a kid, I always wanted to fly," said pilot David Lootens. "I want to be part of making that happen for some of these kids here today.” The event was part of the Young Eagles program, which provides children 8 to 17 with a free flight in general aviation aircraft.
