In Why We Fly
EAA's AirCam Build
EAA’s AirCam, built by volunteers in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Young Eagles program, is nearing completion! Flight testing will begin in spring, and once complete the aircraft will fly Young Eagles, and support EAA photo missions.
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’.
Everyone customizes their homebuilt a little. Bill O’Neil, EAA 367019, doesn’t know the meaning of the word “little.” Get the full story of the truly unique Berkut 360 that he calls the Ultra Raptor in the February 2018 issue of EAA Sport Aviation.
Experience Family Flight Fest 2018
Family Flight Fest was a blast for visiting families, EAA staff, and volunteers alike, as younger visitors got to enjoy activities such as assembling various kinds of gliders and paper airplanes, and parachuting eggs (mostly) safely to the ground.
“Caution: children and adults at play.” That’s one of the signs you see when you arrive at Spruce Creek, the world’s best-known residential airpark. Meet some of the people who call it home.
