EAA Puts Sport Aviation on CD-ROM

48 Years of How-To, History, and Help -- and it's Searchable

Every article, photograph, drawing and letter ever printed in EAA's monthly membership publication "Sport Aviation" is now available in a searchable 48-year digital library, titled the "Complete Collection of Sport Aviation Magazine on CD-ROM."

"The 'Sport Aviation on CD-ROM' collection answers our members' requests for a searchable database of technical advice," said Tom Poberezny, EAA President and publisher of the organization's five monthly magazines. "As we celebrate 50 years of EAA, the collection enables aviation enthusiasts to research tips for aircraft restoration, find instructions for their homebuilt projects and reminisce through the first half-century of EAA activities."

For aircraft homebuilders and restorers, "Sport Aviation on CD-ROM" is the ultimate aviation reference library. The collection contains thousands of in-depth technical and how-to articles from a variety of contributors, including homebuilder Tony Bingelis and airfoil designer John Roncz. There are also numerous aircraft plans, designs, product information and historic photos by EAA's award-winning photographers.

The set catalogues almost a half-century of photographs and first-hand reports of EAA activities, including the popular "Homebuilder's Corner" column created by EAA founder Paul Poberezny and later written by Tom Poberezny. "Sport Aviation on CD-ROM" also documents the annual EAA Fly-In convention with statistics, awards, events, record attempts, breakthroughs and even weather conditions.

The 30-CD set captures roughly 600 issues, 50,000 pages, and 48 years of Sport Aviation in the highest digital quality.  The chronological electronic reference library is searchable by article title, author, date or full text, and will never become outdated.  Future Sport Aviation on CD-ROM updates will be available through a subscription service, providing access to the latest in aircraft design and technology. Extra sleeves for future updates are provided in the faux leather storage case included with the CD collection.

"Sport Aviation on CD-ROM" operates on Windows 95 or higher editions. A Macintosh version will be available this fall. The collection can be purchased for $149.00 through Aeronautica, EAA's on-line store.
