EAA Seeks Volunteers for the Ultralight and Light-Sport Aircraft Council

If you have a passion for ultralight and light-sport aviation (UL/LSA), and have ideas that could help other members and the UL/LSA community, volunteer now for the EAA Ultralight and Light-Sport Aircraft Council.  Since the council’s formation in 1991, it has had a key role in establishing programs and services offered by EAA to support the UL/LSA community.  The role of the EAA Ultralight and Light-Sport Aircraft Council is:

  • To provide advice and analysis to EAA staff and EAA board of directors regarding the needs and interests of the UL/LSA community.
  • To work with EAA staff to generate ideas that can be implemented to support and bring value to our membership.
  • To assist as necessary on projects and activities where UL/LSA expertise is required.  For example, AirVenture activities or Government Advocacy needs.
  • To act as advocates of EAA and promote the benefits of EAA membership.

Council members are appointed by the EAA President and serve in a volunteer capacity for a 3-year renewable term.  Council members have an annual meeting in Oshkosh each fall, AirVenture Oshkosh in July/August, and other meetings by telephone or web as needed.  Volunteering to serve on the UL/LSA council requires a commitment of time and energy.  Successful council members are active participants within the UL/LSA community such as; pilots, instructors, mechanics, chapter members or leaders and attend AirVenture or other aviation events and activities.  

Serving on the UL/LSA council is an opportunity to be a part of the EAA heritage, where members help other members.  To apply for the UL/LSA Council complete and submit the application below.
