EAA Homebuilders Week returns in January for full week of webinars for aircraft building
Weeklong online series coming January 23-27, 2023
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (December 1, 2022) — The Experimental Aircraft Association is bringing back its Homebuilders Week series of online webinars in January 2023, following the big success of the series’ second year in January 2022. The upcoming series is scheduled for January 23-27, 2023, which encompasses the 70th anniversary of EAA’s founding on January 26, 1953.
“More than 14,000 people participated in this year’s Homebuilders Week, showing there continues to be a huge demand for the knowledge and information we are presenting, and making it an easy decision to bring the series back in 2023,” said Charlie Becker, EAA’s director of chapters and homebuilt community manager. “Homebuilders have played a major role in EAA since its founding, and we planned Homebuilders Week to take place in conjunction with the organization’s 70th anniversary to honor and build on our homebuilding roots.”
EAA Homebuilders Week virtual presentations are open, free of charge, to everyone interested in building aircraft. Registration is required and space is limited. The event is sponsored by Aircraft Spruce & Specialty, Dynon, Scheme Designers, and Van’s Aircraft.
The daily live presentations will begin at 11:30 a.m. Central Time each day (Monday through Friday) and continue until 8:15 p.m. It will include everything from getting started successfully to techniques when building with sheet metal, composites, steel, and wood. New and experienced builders will also find in-depth talks on panel planning, wiring, engine selection, FAA certification, and flight testing. The live sessions will also allow plenty of time for attendee questions. Recordings will be archived and available to EAA members for review after the week’s presentations are completed.
The technology used during EAA Homebuilders Week is based on the success of EAA’s webinar series, which has welcomed more than 250,000 people for presentations since 2010. Updated schedule and presentation information, as well as registration details, is available at EAA.org/HomebuildersWeek.
