Default Young Eagle rides

I think I need a booster seat when I give Young Eagle rides. Poor kids cant see over the side of the plane.

Default True

I did young eagles last spring and had the same experience. There were a couple of kids that I felt really bad about because they could not see over the side. I resolved next time to have some sort of booster set up. I haven't decided what that will be yet.
