EAA Webinars Surpass 200,000 Total Attendance Following Major Growth In 2020
September 24, 2020 – EAA's free webinar series, which has brought top aviation experts and personalities to online presentations for the past decade, has now welcomed more than 200,000 people to the sessions following substantial growth in 2020.
The webinars, which are supported by Aircraft Spruce & Specialty, have drawn approximately 30,000 people since March 1 as aviation enthusiasts sought both information and community during the COVID-19 pandemic. EAA expanded its webinar offerings to as many as four sessions per week in recent months.
"Reaching this attendance milestone well ahead of schedule is very gratifying to us, as it means we are reaching EAA members and other aviation enthusiasts with the information they want and the sense of community that is so important to us who fly," said Charlie Becker, EAA's director of chapters, communities, and homebuilt community manager. "The enthusiastic feedback we have received for this content means we'll be planning for even more in the coming months."
EAA's webinar series at EAA.org/Webinars covers the entire spectrum of recreational aviation, from learn-to-fly and aircraft maintenance to weather knowledge and aviation history. All live webinars are free to all, with nearly 600 archived webinars available to EAA members via the association's video library.
