- Possess a current medical certificate (if applicable)
- Be current to carry passengers in the aircraft you plan to use
- Have a current flight review

As an EAA member participating in the Young Eagles program, you are eligible for an additional $1 million of passenger liability insurance coverage, if you carry a mini-mum of $100,000 per seat liability insurance. This cover-age is automatically in place when flying Young Eagles; there are no additional forms to complete. In addition to these requirements, you must also meet the current Fed-eral Air Rules (FARs) for the pilot certificate you hold.
