EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (July 27, 2020) — A series of Experimental Aircraft Association webinars specifically focused on amateur-built aircraft will become a monthly part of EAA’s popular webinar schedule beginning on August 4.
The additional webinars will feature experts from kit manufacturers and areas of homebuilder support. They return as a regular monthly feature following the success of a limited-run series of homebuilders webinars earlier this year.
“We discovered that people involved in aircraft building really enjoy engaging with others in that community and with representatives from the kit companies, even though current circumstances may prevent in-person events and contact,” said Charlie Becker, EAA’s director of chapters, communities, and homebuilt community manager. “Every month, we’ll provide that gathering place for homebuilders and bring them the knowledge and information they need to succeed.”
The homebuilt aircraft webinars will be presented at 7 p.m. Central Time on the first Tuesday of the month. They are free of charge, but preregistration is encouraged at EAA.org/webinars. The initial schedule for the remainder of 2020 includes:
- August 4: Which RV Is Right for Me?; Greg Hughes, Van’s Aircraft
- September 1: Zenith STOL Airplanes; Sebastien Heintz, Zenith Aircraft
- October 6: A $500 HUD (Head-Up Display); John Muzzoli
- November 3: Van’s RV-14; Greg Hughes, Van’s Aircraft
- December 1: RANS S-21 Outbound, All-Metal, All-Purpose; Randy Schlitter, RANS Aircraft
The free webinar series, supported by Aircraft Spruce & Specialty, began in 2010 with a limited schedule of offerings. It now features more than 600 archived webinars on a wide variety of aviation topics. The complete schedule of EAA’s upcoming webinars, which is regularly updated, is available at EAA.org/webinars.
