The Adventures of Aviore | Vol. 1, No. 1, August 2018 Meet Jake Peregrine Howard, Perry to his friends — a guy whose love for flying almost matches his passion for seeing kids reach their dreams of becoming aviators themselves. When Perry isn’t volunteering for the EAA Young Eagles program he takes to the sky under a different name. With a steadfast team behind him, Perry soars to new heights seeking justice and lending a helping hand to those in need. Meet Aviore! Announced at AirVenture 2017, Aviore is the superhero introduced by EAA and the Stan Lee Foundation to help propel EAA’s Young Eagles program — the only one of its kind — supporting its sole mission to inspire young people and introduce them to the world of aviation.
