OSHKOSH, Wis. — The Experimental Aircraft Association’s Hints for Homebuilders instructional video series has now generated more than 3.1 million views, according to association officials, who note that the instructional series has just released its 300th webisode.
The Hints for Homebuilders series was launched nearly five years ago, and features EAA members helping other members. Volunteers step in front of the camera to demonstrate useful tips and hints to other aviation enthusiasts.
The latest filming sessions featured brothers Dick and Bob Koehler, who are aircraft owners, EAA chapter members, experienced Technical Counselors, and A&P/IA mechanics. The Koehler brothers are also both instructors at EAA’s SportAir Workshops. The sessions filmed at Oshkosh will be highlighted into many more webisodes that will premiere in the next few months.
Coming subjects of the “hints” include how to check engine compression, servicing brakes and fuel systems, painting, mounting an instrument in the panel, and antenna installation.
Since 2009, more than three dozen instructors have shared their time and expertise with fellow EAA members and aviation enthusiasts, helping people create safe and fun aircraft.
EAA has also produced two Hints for Homebuilder DVDs, Building Techniques and Sheet Metal Vol. 1; which are available through EAA’s online store. EAA plans to create future DVDs that are also convenient for chapter settings or group viewing.
