EAA Chapter 179 supports a full tuition scholarship to attend EAA’s weeklong Air Academy in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The EAA Advanced Air Academy provides an atmosphere for mature students to become totally immersed in the world of flight. Ground instruction and introductory recreation flight experiences highlight this meaningful, action-packed camp. It combines “in-the-air” and “on-the-ground” hands-on activities. Attendees also have an opportunity to experience EAA’s AirVenture.
