Looking for a certificate for "First Flight"

A buddy of mine will be bringing his kids along so they can all get a flight with me this weekend.

I'd like to print up a couple of "First Flight"-type certificates to give to his kids. I think they'll get a kick out of it.

Are there any .pdf or .doc samples out there than anyone else has used?

Thanks,
Matt

If the kids are under 17 make them Young Eagles and print out the certificates signed by Harrison Ford!

If you have a printing program, it shouldn't be hard to create.

WalMart? What an insult. WalMart has low prices.

Re: Looking for a certificate for "First Flight"

Hey, thanks all.

The boys are 10 yr old twins. Their dad and I work together. He used to fly with his own dad when he was a kid and his dad owned a 172.

He brings his kids to the airport to hang out and watch, and finally our schedules matched up.

Saturday is looking like it might be a nice, crisp, Fall day, should be a lot of fun.

Re: Looking for a certificate for "First Flight"

I know that this is an older thread - but I wanted to say "Thank You!" for the PDF certificate. I created my own (MS Publisher) and incorporated a picture of my daughter sitting at the controls and used the words from your certificate. I did check to see if the company was still in business - copyright??? - and could not find them. The AOPA Project Pilot link to their certificate is broken and the Young Eagles' just wasn't what I wanted. Again Thank you!!!

Re: Looking for a certificate for "First Flight"

I am glad it worked out. I hope mine helped. We had a money raiser for the Senior Citizen new building in my town. I gave rides and gave first flight cert. to the kids that went up for the first time. I had a gal that did the writing on my cert. it made them look good.

Re: Looking for a certificate for "First Flight"

Wow - this is an old thread. I was surprised to see that I started it!

That particular flight didn't work out after all - I remember that we all got out to the airport, but the wind really started picking up. It was a strong, gusty, direct x-wind. No way I was going to take kids on a "First Flight" in that. So we sat in the cockpit for a while, turned on the radios, listened to tower for a few minutes, did a radio check, and went back inside. A couple weeks later we did the flight for real.
