Summer Fun Awaits at
EAA Air Academy!
The EAA Air Academy is a fun-filled aviation camp experience for youth ages 12-18.
From the moment campers arrive, an immersive journey into the world of flight unfolds and close friendships with fellow aviation enthusiasts begin.
For many, the Air Academy becomes an important stepping stone for personal development and appreciation for aviation.
Manufactured in 1938, this aircraft was modified for aerobatics in 1950 by Johnny Vassey. It is better known, however, for having been flown for many years by the famous author, barnstormer and air show pilot Duane Cole. It attended and flew at every EAA Fly-In Convention but two between 1953 and 1989, and is believed to have landed at more airports than any other airplane. When Duane Cole was selected for the USA World Aerobatic Team in 1962, this was the first light plane to cross the Iron Curtain into Communist Hungary.
