EAA’s new Pathways Pavilion, occupying the northwest corner of the EAA Square at the intersection of Knapp Street Road and Celebration Way, could become one of the busier locales across the vast expanse of AirVenture Oshkosh 2014.
The Pathways Pavilion is designed to help both veteran aviators and those who are new to the aviation world find ways to engage in flight. At EAA, that covers a lot of territory.
The Young Eagles and Eagle Flights programs will be represented, and attendees will be encouraged to be a part of these important programs either by volunteering as a pilot, ground crew member, or by participating as an Eagle or Young Eagle. Also represented are the EAA Air Academy and the Association of Modeling Aeronautics to provide opportunities to help young people learn how to feed their passion for flight. Stop by to see how you can support or participate in these programs.
Another important part of EAA with a presence in the area will be the chapter network. More than 900 chapters bring EAA’s spirit of aviation to their local communities, and at the Pathways Pavilion everyone is encouraged to join their local chapter or start a chapter of their own. Have a question about how to be more impactful in your chapter, or have an idea to share with other chapters out there? Stop by and see us!
You can also learn more about EAA’s special interest communities, including EAA Warbirds of America, International Aerobatic Club, EAA Homebuilders, EAA Ultralights, and the EAA Vintage Aircraft Association. Each of these areas has ways for both newcomers and seasoned EAA attendees to become more involved in a special segment of flight.
Finally, EAA is excited to welcome back the learn-to-fly area in the Pathways Pavilion. Volunteer flight instructors will be available to give instruction in simulators provided by Red Bird Flight Simulations. Interested in an advanced rating or pilot certificate? This is the perfect place to stop and ask questions about the best way to accomplish it.
We encourage everyone to stop by the EAA Pathways Pavilion and discover the many ways they can engage in aviation.
