EAA Virtual Ultralight Days return on February 20-22 to build community, share knowledge with ultralight enthusiasts
Free event features 15 webinars over three days
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (January 15, 2024) — Building on the previous years’ successes, EAA Virtual Ultralight Days returns for a third year on February 20-22 with three days of webinars focused on the lighter side of aviation.
The 15 total webinars – five on each of the three days – run from 1-8:15 p.m. each day. The webinars are based on the highly successful format used during the previous EAA Virtual Ultralight Days, EAA Homebuilders Week and EAA’s popular webinar series. Well-known subject matter experts in the ultralight community will present each live session with question-and-answer periods to address specific questions.
“Ultralight flying remains as one of the most accessible forms of recreational flight while also being one of the purest,” said Timm Bogenhagen, EAA Ultralight and Light Plane Community Manager. “Virtual Ultralight Days provides a free avenue to introduce more people to this segment of aviation and grow the knowledge of those already part of this community.”
Topics covered will include how to get started in Ultralights; how-to instructions on a variety of Ultralight aircraft like fixed-wing, powered parachutes, powered paragliders, and weight-shift trikes; and overall informative topics on maintenance, airport operations, safety inspections, and more.
All sessions are free of charge to everyone, with the archived video presentations available to EAA members afterward. Pre-registration is encouraged, with registration links and additional schedule information available at EAA.org/UltralightDays.
