The Candler Field Youth Aviation Program (YAP) was founded in 2013. Through the YAP, youth interested in beginning a career in aviation have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in restoring and maintaining aircraft. Those interested have the opportunity to earn flying time, allowing them to learn how to pilot an airplane through the Candler Field Flying Club.
The Candler Field Flying Club offers affordable flight instruction to individuals interested in flying. Emphasis is placed upon young people and teaching the basics of flying to include both ground instruction and flight instruction.
