About Us

Online registration for each flight rally opens three months prior to the event.  All rallies will be held on Saturday mornings, 8:00a - 11:30a.  Here is the schedule for 2022:

    March 12, April 30, May 14, June 11, September 17, October 15, November 12

Parents and legal guardians should register their Young Eagles ONLINE IN ADVANCE at the Young Eagles Day website here.  Look for Auburn CA flight rallies.  Choose a time slot and enter the data required for the waiver form.  Arrive at the airport at the BEGINNING of the time slot.  Waiver forms will be printed and signed at the airport.  The same adult who registers the Young Eagle online must be present to sign the form at the flight rally.

At the rally parents and legal guardians will watch their youngsters (ages 8 to 17) fly free with our qualified pilots.  If this is his or her first flight with EAA, the Young Eagle will receive a certificate and log book filled out by the pilot.  Young Eagles receive a free student membership with valuable benefits from EAA (click here for more info).

Directions to the Barnstormer for Auburn flight rallies:

2019 parking - Barnstormer.jpgFrom Interstate 80 take the Bell Road off ramp (Exit 123), which is just east of Auburn.  If you are coming from the west (Sacramento), turn left and then continue straight across the freeway and onto Bell Road.  If you are coming from the east (Reno), turn right onto Bell Road.

Continue west about one mile on Bell Road to New Airport Road.  It is the first traffic light.  Turn right and continue to the end.  The airport parking lot will be on your right.  Do not park in the restaurant’s lot.

The Barnstormer is in the white building on the north edge of the airport parking lot.  Enter the building through the doorway on the south side, across the lawn.  The Barnstormer will be on your right near the end of the hallway.
