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!
In Why We Fly
Flying with Draco and the Cowboys!
EAA took a visit to Utah and stopped by the Flying Cowboys to see what they were up to. While there, we got to fly with DRACO! Weather prevented any mountain flying and cut the trip short, but it was a blast! Backcountry flying is where it's at!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
