We are a community of pilots and aviation enthusiasts who protect and promote recreational flying. We work to preserve and extend the freedom of flight, and to knock down barriers to personal aviation.
The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is a growing and diverse organization of members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds.
Founded in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own airplanes, EAA expanded its mission of growing participation in aviation to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters, and contemporary manufactured aircraft.
Membership in EAA enables you to share the spirit of aviation with the most passionate community of recreational pilots, builders, and restorers.
EAA is the only association that offers the fun and camaraderie of participating in the flying, building, and restoring of recreational aircraft with the most passionate community of aviation enthusiasts.
Who We Are
How does one describe an EAA member? That question does not have a definitive answer.
EAA members represent every aspect of aviation and often have multiple interests. We fly them. We fix them. We even build them.
EAA members are what we like to call the “keepers of the flame.” Sure, we love airplanes. But it goes beyond that.
It’s about passion, camaraderie, that ol’ can-do spirit, and a grassroots way of sharing our love of aviation with others.
It’s the airplanes that bring us together. It’s the people who keep us coming back.
