Diversity + PassionOur love for aviation shows itself in different ways. Whatever sparks your obsession, EAA will help you chase it with everything we’ve got.
The Vintage Aircraft Association is the EAA division that brings people together who share a love for the aircraft of yesterday. The association has been working tirelessly to keep aviation history alive since its founding in 1971.
Vintage aircraft are more than just living museum pieces; they’re fully functioning time machines, immersing pilots and passengers in the sights and sounds of eras gone by. Whether it’s a classic like a Cub, an open-cockpit biplane, or a one-of-a-kind early airliner, these aircraft tell the story of aviation, live and in-person.VAA members are passionate stewards of the history of aviation, and dedicated to preserving, promoting, and sharing that history with like-minded people from around the world.
Whether you fly, restore, or simply enjoy vintage aircraft and aviation, we invite you to consider adding the Vintage Aircraft Association to your EAA membership.
