2022 Pilot Your Own Adventure Writing Contest Winners Announced

April 29, 2022 - Based on the enthusiasm from last year, we weren’t surprised to get a lot of entries for EAA’s Pilot Your Own Adventure Contest, supported by Flight Outfitters. Our panel of judges read nearly 200 stories, and, while it was an extremely close race, ultimately chose five winners. You’ll be able to read their stories in July, as we will publish them, both online and in the daily AirVenture Today newspaper, during this year’s AirVenture.

This year's winners are:

Grand Prize
