The Sky Has No Limits

Enthusiasts around the world share your same burning passion for aviation, a collective obsession that’s at the beating heart of EAA.

LODA Holders

These instructors hold Letters of Deviation Authority (LODA) from the FAA, authorizing them to operate their experimental aircraft for hire for the purposes of type-specific training.

EAA, as well as the FAA and NTSB, strongly recommend that all builders and new owners of experimental aircraft undertake a thorough transition training program before flying their own aircraft solo for the first time (during Phase I testing or otherwise).

These instructors are an invaluable resource toward accomplishing that goal. Proper transition training is an essential first step toward safe operation of experimental aircraft and a key element in the continuing effort to improve aviation safety.
