Soar & Support

Soar & Supportis AU鈥檚 self-paced Pre-Orientation course for families, designed to introduce you to various resources and strategies to support your new Eagle in flight. Soar & Support is听aligned听to the听Flight Ready!听student course.

Did you know that not all birds push their young out of the nest to encourage them to fly? Young Eaglets start their flight training by mimicking what they have watched their parents do for months: spreading their wings! The fledgling experiences the sensation of flight when wind drafts catch its outstretched wings and lift it slightly from the nest. You've prepared them well鈥攏ow it's time to let them fly! Check out the听 if you need help navigating the platform.
