In Why We Fly
Draco - A Beast of a Bushplane
Eight days before AirVenture 2018, Mike Patey completed his latest project and flew it to Oshkosh. Draco stole the show and drew awestruck crowds. Draco began life as a PZL Wilga but has been heavily modified.
Finding the Spirit of Aviation in the Backcountry
There might be more dust, playa desert, and cowboys in Nevada than in Wisconsin, but the atmosphere, camaraderie, and love for aviation felt all over the dry lakebed at the High-Sierra Fly-In had quite the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh convention feel!
National Aviation Day
It’s National Aviation Day on August 19! We not only celebrate our freedom to fly, but we reflect on how far we have come since Wilbur and Orville Wright took to the sky in 1903. We hope you have an aviation-filled day!
EAA's Flying Start Program
EAA’s new Flying Start program provides EAA chapters with an opportunity to reach out into the local community and bring folks interested in aviation to the airport to show them firsthand how accessible and enjoyable general aviation can be.
Triple Tree Young Aviators Fly-In
The picturesque Triple Tree Aerodrome recently hosted the inaugural Young Aviators Fly-In, which drew approximately 500 attendees and 200 airplanes. The event was a tremendous success, helping showcase youth in aviation and hopefully inspiring more.
Taking Off Together - Flying Clubs
Flying clubs are a great way for pilots to get more affordable flight time, but they also provide a window into aviation for the surrounding communities. Hands-on experiences around the hangar and flight training opportunities are all benefits.
