EAA director Fred Telling discussed the EAA
Founders' Wing Saturday with a group of EAA chapter representatives
during the Chapter Leaders Breakfast, held in the EAA AirVenture Museum.
Telling, chairman of the Founders' Wing fund-raising committee, was
joined on stage by EAA Founder Paul Poberezny and Charles Harris,
another member of the committee, as they described the importance of
preserving EAA's rich heritage. "The EAA Founders' Wing is the
perfect opportunity to thank Paul and Audrey Poberezny for everything
they've accomplished," Harris said.

The EAA Founders' Wing, which is
scheduled to be completed in 2009 and will be located in the AirVenture
Museum, will showcase Paul's collection of memorabilia that holds the
history of EAA in archived letters, pictures, artifacts, media
clippings, and much more.
"It is important that, now, in their
lifetime, we thank Paul and Audrey for the role they have played in not
only changing the individual lives of members but the path of general
aviation's growth in general," said Elissa Lines, vice president of
EAA donor and business relations.
