EAA Air Academy at Oshkosh

Posted on February 03, 2018 by Tom Meadows

Fun and discovery combine for an experience that young people can find nowhere else at the EAA Air Academy, a series of weeklong camps designed to introduce young people ages 12-18 to the aviation world. Campers are engaged through a variety of hands-on activities while staying at the Air Academy Lodge. Experienced aviation instructors help them delve into flight through studies, hands-on demonstrations, flight simulation, and other exciting activities. Recognized by MSN Money as one of 10 summer camps “worth the money,” Air Academy provides the foundation for a lifelong love of aviation. EAA 1073 is proud to offer scholarships every year for our Young Eagles to attend the EAA Air Academy at Oshkosh, WI.

The Air Academy has three Camps for three age groups:
