Area youth will get a chance to take to the skies for free Nov. 14, as pilots at the Shelby County Airport will be volunteering their aircraft to share the flight experience.

Pilots will be taking children ages 8-17 into the air from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. as part of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles program.
