SOLIDWORKS is the industry standard for CAD software—used by aircraft and kit manufacturers from Cirrus to Zenith. EAA has received a generous offer from SOLIDWORKS to make a personal-use version of the software available to EAA members at no charge!
Explore this resource center to help you get started using SOLIDWORKS. EAA will continue to add information, training and related resources, so please check back often.
Our best resource has always been people like you! We invite you to get on the EAA Forums and ask questions, share your experiences, and help others!
