April 28, 2014 – EAA today launched its newly restructured flagship website, www.EAA.org, bringing together its family of websites under a single banner, with faster, state-of-the-art navigation, integration with mobile devices, and a bold new look.
“EAA’s main website has served us very well for nearly a decade, but EAA members and other aviation enthusiasts require digital and web services that meet today’s technology,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of marketing. “This new EAA.org brings together nearly all of our diverse websites and gives members what they’re looking for from their organization. The site also reflects the passion of EAA members and others who enjoy the freedom of flight.”
The new website, developed by EAA’s digital media and information technology teams in a partnership with Hanson Dodge Creative of Milwaukee, provides easy access to all content formerly on the EAA, AirVenture, EAA AirVenture Museum, and Shop EAA websites. Almost all previous web address and bookmarks will connect you with your favorite web pages, but content is easier to find through the menus at the top of each page.
In addition, EAA members will be able to manage their own member information more efficiently through a single login account (all members are asked to create a new username and password to replace their former Oshkosh365 and Shop EAA login information). Only the EAA Forums and EAA Video areas will remain as separate websites at this time.
“This updated website reflects in the input we’ve had from EAA members and others over the past several years,” Larsen said. “Our team’s goal was to eliminate the many ‘add-on’ websites that had emerged over the past decade and create easy-to-access information that was available on the variety of devices our members now use.”
While most of the work for the new EAA.org site is complete, it remains a work in progress. New features will be added in coming months. Users are also invited to add their ideas and suggestions through the Contact Us feature.
