For kids looking for a different form of transportation, Saturday was the perfect day to take to the skies, especially if you still don't have that pilot's license.
More than 138 kids got a birds-eye view today at Charlottesville Albemarle Airport by taking part in the Young Eagles Day.
This group, organized by Harrison Ford, lets kids between 8 and 17 go up with a licensed pilot as a way to keep them interested in aviation until they can get their own license.
The program is 10 years old, and this was the second year it was held in Albemarle County.
Organizers say it was already more of a success than last year.
