2024 Air Academy

IMPORTANT: Parents of Kids Aged 14-18

EAA Air Academy Summer Camp Opportunity

EAA 1541 2024 Air Academy Application

As part of our youth scholarship program, EAA Chapter 1541 will sponsor two young people to attend individual sessions of the EAA’s Air Academy summer camp to be held at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, this coming summer.

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.

The chapter has reserved two slots:

Basic Air Academy (ages 14-15) to be held June 28 through July 3

Advanced Air Academy (ages 16-18) to be held July 16 through July 24

Our chapter sponsorship provides tuition and a travel stipend for each young person. Participants stay at the EAA Air Academy under the direction of EAA counselors for the entire session. Experienced aviation instructors help them delve into flight through studies, hands-on demonstrations, flight simulation, and other exciting activities. As a bonus, The Advanced Air Academy also overlaps with the dates of the huge EAA AirVenture convention/airshow at Oshkosh; many families of attendees have arranged for attendance at the airshow also.

Here is more information about the Air Academy from the EAA website.
