Technical Counselors

Tech CounselorsEAA Technical Counselors are experienced airplane builders, restorers, and mechanics who volunteer their time to visit other EAA members who are in the process of building or restoring their own aircraft.
The goal of EAA’s Technical Counselors program is to help members present a “zero defect” aircraft at final inspection by the FAA. It’s aimed at providing experienced builders to help you make the right choices during construction.
If you are building or restoring, tap into this member benefit early in the project to save time, money, and aggravation! Get the peace of mind that can only be had from an experienced builder looking over your work to provide you with a best path forward.

Our Technical Counselors can advise you on most aspects of aircraft manufacturing procedures including woodworking, welding and brazing, fabric covering and finishing, painting, composites, engine maintenance, electrical systems, and sheet metal work such as depicted in the images below from a member's Vans RV-10 project.
