Bainbridge --  A hundred Bainbridge students ages ranging from 8 to 18 will get a once in a lifetime chance to fly a plane Saturday.

The event is being put on by Bainbridge High School's Junior ROTC cadets as their Young Eagle project.  In honor of the 60th anniversary of the Air Force, and the 100th anniversary of flight in the state of Georgia, the project is really a chance to get youth interested in aviation.  

"We've had some participate who, most of them when they come away from the airplane on the ramp, and they're coming back, maybe they're a little anxious about going to fly, you see them walking back and they've got this big smile sort of like riding a roller coaster and they say, 'Can we do it again'?" said BHS ROTC Director Col. Gary Breedlove.

Over 100 students have applied for an orientation flight.  But everyone is still encouraged to come out to the Bainbridge Airport Saturday for the event, as long as the weather permits.
