2018 marks the 35th year of the EAA Air Academy, which has grown considerably since its first class in 1984 but continues to offer an unmatched aviation experience for youth.
Campers are engaged through a variety of hands-on activities while staying at the EAA Air Academy Lodge in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Experienced aviation instructors help them delve into flight through studies, hands-on demonstrations, flight simulation, and other exciting activities.
The various EAA Air Academy camps are split up by age group, and are held throughout June, July, and August. To learn more about the academy and to apply, visit EAA.org/airacademy.
