Another EAA 690 Young Eagle Pursues Aviation

During the Summer of 2014 Dayton Palmer attended the EAA 690 Summer Camp as a part of the “Bravo” group.  Dayton has also been an active participant in our Young Eagle program.  We recently received an email from Teresa Palmer, Dayton’s mother.

Good evening, Jeanne—


I hope this finds you well.  First of all, I’d like to thank you for all that EAA 690 has done to further our son’s love for flying.  I wanted you to know that our son, Dayton Hyatt,  was recently accepted to flight programs at Middle Georgia State University and Auburn University in Alabama.  He has chosen to pursue  a degree in Professional Flight Management at Auburn University. My husband and I are so proud of him, and wanted to thank you for everything that EAA has done to help prepare him for a career in aviation. Your flight program had a great deal to do with introducing him to the aviation industry, and the summer camps were a wonderful introduction to the road—or skies—that lie ahead.  Thank you for the bottom of our hearts!

Please do not hesitate to contact Dayton should you need a young representative to sing your organization’s praises.  He realizes wholeheartedly the importance of giving back, and is ready to help out in any way possible.  We appreciate everything EAA 690 has done for him, and are so grateful in so many ways. Please share this e-mail with the pilots and other volunteers in your organization, and remind them that they are definitely making a difference in the lives of our youth, as you prepare them for careers in the aviation industry.


Thank you so much for everything!



Teresa and U’thai Palmer

    Hi Teresa,
    My name is Stephen Elrod and I am a member of the EAA chapter 690 at Lawrenceville. I am also a graduate of Auburn University’s aviation program and now fly professionally as an airline pilot for JetBlue Airways. I just wanted to write and congratulate Dayton for his choice in a career in aviation, as well as his acceptance to Auburn. If you or Dayton have any questions about Auburn, or career choices in aviation, please feel free to contact me at elrod723@gmail.com or my cell at 404-259-3111 and I would be happy to offer any advice or insight to questions you both may have. Again, congratulations and War Eagle!
