Join us on January 23-27, 2023, during the third-annual EAA Homebuilders Week online event. Experts from every corner of the homebuilt aircraft community will bring their knowledge and information to builders everywhere through free and interactive webinars. Topics covered include workshops on sheet metal, welding, and wood; aircraft designs from a variety of industry leaders; part selection when building; buying secondhand; and more.
This five-day event coincides with the 70th anniversary of the first Experimental Aircraft Association meeting on January 26, 1953. Homebuilders Week will be a tremendous learning opportunity that celebrates our legacy of, as EAA founder Paul Poberezny often said, using hand and mind to create aircraft that allow us to enjoy the personal freedom of flight!
This presentation by Charlie Becker will go beyond the actual building process to educate you on the FAA rules that apply to building your own aircraft, as well as insurance, liability, the repairman certificate, and much more.
Sheet Metal construction is the most popular material used in today’s kit aircraft. Learn the basics of how to work with sheet metal in this session. EAA’s Mark Forss will share what you need to know to be successful.
This presentation is for builders who want to know how to plan and wire their aircraft. Marc Ausman, author of Aircraft Wiring Guide, will cover how to start thinking about and planning for the electrical system.
