Members of the Falcon Field Airport community enjoy sharing their passion for aviation and adventure with each other and aviation enthusiasts. To foster a spirit of community among airport tenants and to encourage others to learn, explore and pursue their aviation dreams, the airport hosts meetings and free events throughout the year for pilot and business tenants, as well as the general public.
Falcon Field Airport is home to a variety of aviation organizations and pilot groups. From community pancake breakfasts to fly-ins, they host a variety of unique events to share their aircraft and love of flying, mentor young pilots, and raise money to support charitable causes.
The airport comes to you! Visit the Falcon Field Airport booth at City of Mesa community events to learn about your community airport and how you can get involved in aviation!

Young Eagles Aircraft Rides - EAA Ch. 228

4800 E. Falcon Drive
Mesa, Arizona 85215
Mesa Chapter 228 of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) will offer FREE aircraft rides for youth through the EAA Young Eagles program on Saturday, Nov. 23 at Falcon Field Airport. A pre-flight briefing begins at 7:00 a.m., and rides begin at 8:00 a.m.
The program provides young people between the ages of 8 and 18 a chance to learn firsthand about flying from chapter members who donate their time and planes to provide free introductory flights.
In a time when airline and air transport pilots, along with aircraft mechanics, are in short supply, the Young Eagles program seeks to give young people an appreciation for the thrill of flight and possible futures in aviation. Whether that is professionally or recreationally, the program provides a good basic introduction to the world of aviation.
If you or a youth you know would like to learn more about aircraft and aviation from pilots who are passionate about flying, register for the Nov. 23 event at https://youngeaglesday.org?997
