Over the past two decades, over $20 million has been raised by our enthusiastic bidders, corporate sponsors, and generous donors at EAA’s largest fundraiser, the Gathering of Eagles. Last year, the event generated $2.2 million for EAA programs. We celebrated some monumental achievements, including the 2 millionth Young Eagle and the beginnings of EAA’s new Sport Pilot Academy.
Something amazing happened in 2016 and to continue that success, we hope you’ll Light Their Way at the Gathering of Eagles 2017. Join us on Thursday, July 27, 2017, for a night of entertainment, fine dining, luxurious wine, and auction lots you can’t find anywhere else. You’ll spend an evening in the company of invited honored guests, highlighted by Apollo astronauts as we honor the 50th anniversary of the Apollo program.
Below is a small glimpse at last year’s Gathering of Eagles. Please take a look at the video and photo gallery below and relive some of our favorite moments. All donations from this remarkable evening support the maintenance and implementation of EAA’s education programs, allowing us to grow the next generation of aviators and keep The Spirit of Aviation alive.
Registration has closed. You will need to now register your guests at the Gathering of Eagles in the lobby starting at 5:00pm on Thursday, July 27th.

AUCTION - FORD “F-22 RAPTOR" F-150
This year, the Gathering of Eagle’s one-of-a-kind Ford vehicle, specially designed and built by Ford Motor Company, will have a new twist — the creation of a specially built “F-22 Raptor” F-150 Raptor. The goal was to strive for a creative connection to the Lockheed F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft while highlighting the unique style, capabilities, and design features of the 2017 F-150 Raptor.
