What is Air Academy?

“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 EAA Air Academy Lodge in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Experienced aviation instructors help them delve into flight through studies, hands-on demonstrations, flight simulation, and other exciting activities.” –EAA

The Scholarship

Each year, Chapter 92 hand-selects 1–2 Young Eagles to receive a no-cost (or almost no-cost) scholarship to attend Air Academy Basic Camp (for campers age 14-15 in July during the camp). Applicants are selected based on the following:

  • Passion for aviation, whether as a hobby or future career
  • Commitment to EAA 92 (attend meetings, volunteer at events, etc.)
  • Eagerness to learn about aircraft and aircraft building
  • Self-driven character

We hope and intend for this scholarship to be a gateway to even further involvement in EAA 92, and the aviation community in general.
