Send a Youth to the 2012 EAA Air Academy
November 15, 2011 – EAA chapters have been at the heart of EAA Air Academy’s success since it began in 1984. For many youth who have participated, it has become a steppingstone for their personal growth and development as well as their appreciation for aviation.
While summer feels like a long way off, now is the time to sign up for the 2012 Air Academy camps. As the success of the Air Academy has grown, it becomes more important than ever to make a reservation early. Openings are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
The EAA Air Academy immerses youth ages 12-18 in aviation through classroom discussions, hands-on workshops, tours of the EAA facilities and museum, actual flight instruction in a Cessna 162 SkyCatcher, and a flight in a Bell 47 helicopter.
The registration fee includes all instruction, materials, meals, and lodging in the beautiful EAA Air Academy Lodge, located at Pioneer Airport on the grounds of the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
