EAA Flight Simulator
Pitch, yaw, and roll in the EAA Flight Simulator. It may not be the real thing, but it's the next best thing.
EAA Air Show Viewing
EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is "The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration." Spend the afternoon watching pilots perform amazing maneuvers at the air show, while sharing quality time with appointed mentors.
Experience a taste of aircraft building in workshops designed to teach such hands-on skills such as sheet metal construction, riveting, fabric covering, building wing ribs, welding, composite work, engine assembly, sheet metal forming and more.
The Women Air Force Service Pilots, known as the WASP, were a pioneering organization of civilian female pilots who flew military aircraft under the direction of the U.S. Army Air Force during gender-sensitive days of World War II. Allowing the women to fly freed up a male pilot for combat service and duties. Learn their history from the women who served!
