The Experimental Aircraft Association or EAA is an international organization that encourages and supports sport aviation–flying that is done strictly for pleasure.

We sponsor six children each summer for the EAA Air Academy, a unique weeklong camp at the Air Academy Lodge in Oshkosh, Wis. that enables young people ages 12 to18 to take their interest in aviation to the next level.

We also support the Young Eagles Program, which gives interested young people, ages 8 to 17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. Each year, our family participates in the Young Eagles benefit dinner called Raise the Windsock, which is held during the Oshkosh Air Show.

We established a challenge grant commemorating Harrison Ford’s five-year chairmanship of the EAA Young Eagles program. Our $100,000 grant and matching funds from the EAA donor community will be used to establish the Harrison Ford Education Scholarship Fund to help aspiring young people at each step along their aviation-education journey–from taking a first flying lesson to completing a flight training program, passing the FAA written private-pilot exam and pursuing continuing education in an aviation field.
