In Why We Fly
Midwing Special - It Used to Be a What?
Believe it or not, this airplane used to be a Super Cub. Ben Anderson, EAA 1032615, bought the one-of-a-kind Midwing Special from air show pilot Ned Surratt about three years ago, and spent a couple of years restoring it before bringing it to #OSH17.
A Step Back in Time: MAAC Grassroots Fly-In
Every September, the Midwest Antique Airplane Club holds their private, invitation-only Grassroots fly-in. An abundance of antique airplanes, a beautiful backdrop, camaraderie, and airplane talk all bring you back to the ‘good ol’ days’.
EAA Seaplane Base at AirVenture 2018
There are a lot of ways to get to the EAA Seaplane Base during AirVenture, but the best is also the most obvious — flying in by seaplane. Ride along in a classic Grumman Goose and take a tour of this idyllic aviation haven.
EAA at SUN 'n FUN 2018
EAA staff visited SUN 'n FUN International last week, talking with EAA members, meeting with partners, and gathering stories. Our staff captured much of the event – here are just a few of our favorites.
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.
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!
