       What is EAA?........

The Experimental Aircraft Association is an organization that promotes all forms of recreational aviation. It was started in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own airplanes. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antique and classic aircraft, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters and commercially manufactured aircraft.

This organization brings people together with an interest in recreational aviation, facilitating social interaction and information sharing between aviation enthusiasts. Many of the services that EAA offers provide valuable support resources for those that wish develop and improve various skills related to aircraft construction and restoration, piloting, aviation safety, and aviation education.

EAA is a national organization with local chapters all over the world. Information is shared through various publications, chapter newsletters, websites, air shows, and numerous other programs. .

You don't have to be a pilot or aircraft owner to be a member of EAA. You can find different ways to fulfill your aviation interest, whether it's in participating in EAA's Young Eagles (that has reached  a goal of giving one million kids an airplane ride) or visiting the world's premier aviation event . . . EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
