EAA SportAir Workshops to Implement New Model in 2013
December 6, 2012 - Since first offering courses in the early 2000s, EAA's SportAir Workshops have been traveling around the country to help educate homebuilders in their journey. The workshops provide the guidance to increase confidence and skills for attendees to take home and put to use.
In 2013, starting with the workshops slated for Oshkosh in January, EAA will begin implementing a new model as eight to 12 strategically located regional sites will be established around the country, allowing courses to be offered on a more regular basis. These regional facilities should also lead to expanding both the frequency and course offerings throughout the year. The TIG welding course will continue to be held exclusively at the Atlanta Aerospace Composites, Griffin, Georgia.
"SportAir Workshops are changing and evolving," said Jennifer Bork, newly promoted SportAir Workshops coordinator. "The workshops are an important EAA offering that represent the core of who we are. We are committed to improving the workshop experience."
Each regional location will be equipped to offer fabric covering, sheet metal, and composites instruction as well as electrical systems and avionics courses. As EAA SportAir Workshops evolve, workshop attendees can expect to see expanded course offerings, more advanced skills workshops, improved quality, and other enhancements.
EAA will provide more information soon, including selected regional locations and course schedules/offerings, so stay tuned.
