EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (February 21, 2023) — Aspiring aviators have the opportunity to discover multiple pathways to becoming a pilot as EAA presents its inaugural Learn to Fly Week on May 15-20.

Learn to Fly Week will feature five days of webinars covering all aspects of the process of becoming a pilot. All sessions will be free of charge to everyone, with archived recordings available to EAA members. A full schedule of topics and presenters will be released in the coming weeks. Online pre-registration is required.

“Becoming a pilot is a dream for many, but few know where to start their journey. Learn to Fly Week was created to help encourage aspiring pilots to take action and begin the pilot training process,” said David Leiting, EAA Eagles Program Manager. “Our goal is to show attendees how accessible achieving their dream actually is.”

Learn to Fly Week will conclude on Saturday, May 20, with Flying Start events hosted at chapters across the country. EAA’s Flying Start program allows EAA chapters to welcome, encourage, and educate new aviation enthusiasts to the fun, freedom, and accessibility of personal aviation in their local area. Following a short presentation about learning to fly, attendees will be offered a free introductory Eagle Flight to experience the spirit of aviation firsthand.
