About the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)
The Experimental Aircraft Association is an organization that promotes all forms of recreational aviation. It is a diverse organization of members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds. The EAA was founded in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own aircrafts. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters, and commercially manufactured aircraft. An interest in aviation is the common denominator that brings our people together, in good fellowship and sharing. The EAA is a national organization and has local chapters, such as ours, all over the world. You don't have to be a pilot to join in, the only requirement is a love for aviation.
