Join us on January 26-30, 2021, during the first EAA Homebuilders Week online event. Experts from every corner of the homebuilt aircraft community will bring their knowledge and information to builders everywhere through free and interactive webinars. Topics covered include workshops on sheet metal, welding, and wood; aircraft designs from a variety of industry leaders; part selection when building; buying secondhand; and more.
This weeklong event coincides with the 68th anniversary of the first Experimental Aircraft Association meeting on January 26, 1953. Homebuilders Week will be a tremendous learning opportunity that celebrates our legacy of, as EAA founder Paul Poberezny often said, using hand and mind to create aircraft that allow us to enjoy the personal freedom of flight!
