Service Animals

EAA follows ADA guidelines regarding service animals. The ADA defines service animals as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. The specific work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to a person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals according to the ADA. Therefore, emotional support animals are not permitted on any EAA or AirVenture grounds or in any EAA or AirVenture facilities.

Service animals must remain on a leash or in a harness and under the control of the owner at all times.
