EAA is The Spirit of Aviation®  

Its mission is to grow participation in aviation.

Founded in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own airplanes. EAA expanded its mission of growing participation in aviation to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters, and contemporary manufactured aircraft.

Membership in EAA enables you to share the spirit of aviation with the most passionate community of recreational pilots, builders, and restorers. EAA is the only association that offers the fun and camaraderie of participating in the flying, building, and restoring of recreational aircraft.

“EAA means many things to many people, but one thing for sure is the happiness it has created through aviation for so many people.” Paul Poberezny, EAA Sport Aviation®, May 1986


What is an EAA Chapter?

An EAA chapter brings together individuals interested in learning more about aviation as well as sharing their own knowledge. Chapters are involved in a variety of social and educational activities, including Young Eagles rallies, fly-ins, building seminars, and more, to build awareness in the community.

“There are a great many benefits to be gained by a group working closely together and probably the greatest are the many newfound friends that EAA has caused, and we can see an ever-increasing number in the future.” Paul Poberezny, EAA Sport Aviation®, May 1968
