Get hands-on and learn just about every skill you need to build an airplane at daily workshops.
Patterned after the highly successful EAA SportAir Workshops, these daily workshops let you experience a taste of aircraft building and cover a gamut of tasks including sheet metal construction and riveting, fabric covering, building wood truss wing ribs, oxyacetylene and TIG welding, and composite lay-up.
EAA SportAir Workshops instructors, EAA Technical Counselors, skilled volunteers, and industry experts lead you step-by-step through hands-on lessons, giving you the necessary skills and information to get started or take the next step in your homebuilding project.
Additionally, at any given time there’s an airplane under construction by volunteers at the EAA Aeroplane Factory.
