The Gathering Exceeds $2 Million to Support Aviation's Future

July 24, 2015 - The annual Gathering of Eagles gala on Thursday evening in the EAA AirVenture Museum Eagle Hangar raised $2.16 million to support EAA’s youth education programs and resources.

More than 1,000 people packed the Eagle Hangar in EAA’s AirVenture Museum for the gala event. The most anticipated item of the night, auction of the Apollo Mustang built and donated by Ford Motor Company, fetched $230,000.

The Raise the Windsock effort was once again a phenomenal success, totaling more than $300,000.

Two other large-ticket items brought $50,000 apiece—the Red Bull Helicopter Experience with pilot Chuck Aaron, and the Alaskan Fishing and North Slope Adventure.

EAA thanks all who attended for helping to ensure the future of aviation through support of EAA and the Gathering of Eagles.
