Young Eagles Air Academy Registrations Open

Summer Courses for 2024 Now Open for Registration

The EAA has opened reservations for its summer teen education programs for 2024.

The EAA Air Academy in Oshkosh, Wisconsin offers 12 to 18-year olds an aviation focused getaway, with 3 different skill and experience levels available. The first, the Young Eagles Camp, is appropriate for ages 12 to 13, and runs for 2 4-day spans in June. That tempo stands for each course, allowing a brief respite between sessions before jumping right back into the mix after a 2-day break. The second level is the EAA Basic Air Academy, for ages 14 to 15, held at the tail end of June to the 2nd week in July. The highest level, the EAA Advanced Air Academy, targets the 16 to 18 crowd with sessions running in late July to early August.

"These weeklong camps allow youths to participate in a variety of activities to teach them about aviation," says EAA press describing the camps. "These activities range from building flyable model aircraft, to ground school sessions on flight science and aviation history, to workshops where they can learn technical skills involved in aircraft construction, restoration, and maintenance. Attendees are housed in the Air Academy Lodge on the EAA grounds. They receive tours of the EAA Aviation Museum and Pioneer Airport. Weather permitting, the youths also receive flights in both an airplane and a helicopter."

Prices vary, but regional EAA chapters can use their Young Eagles Credits to send their kids out, should they have them. Credits can be used to cover up to 100% of an attendee's tuition, as well as cover transportation costs of sending them to the academy.
