What is the EAA Air Academy?
Each summer, the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Air Academy offers high school students an opportunity to go to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and learn all about aviation.
The EAA Air Academy is a summer camp that takes a young interest in aviation to the next level. Participants spend a week at the Air Academy Lodge in Oshkosh, immersed in the world of aviation. Top-notch instructors help to explore the world of flight through aviation studies, hands-on activities, flight simulation, and many other experiences. The highlight of the week is a flight in an airplane.
