BIG SPRING - A program to help young pilots take to the skies has been grounded in Big Spring.

It's called "Young Eagle Flights" and it takes place at the Hanger 25 Air Museum.

It had to be canceled because not enough planes are ready.

The owners have been working on the planes but only one plane is able to fly right now.

This is the second time the flights have been canceled.

Back in May, bad weather also shut them down.

They're now aiming to hold them sometime next year.
