After two hugely successful Homebuilders Weeks in 2021 and 2022, EAA will offer the program again in 2023. The events kick off on January 23. Here’s a link to the schedule of events. And, yes, it reads like the contributor list for KITPLANES, with Paul Dye, Vic Syracuse, Ron Wanttaja, Dave Prizio, Stein Bruch and Lisa Turner.
“This event is an opportunity for a new person to jump in with both feet and learn a lot about the wonderful world of homebuilding. We will cover areas like getting started successfully and techniques when building with sheet metal, composites, steel, and wood. But it won’t be just for the newbie; we are offering in-depth talks on panel planning, engine selection, FAA certification, flight testing, and selling a homebuilt aircraft. There will be something for every builder, whether you are just starting out, knee deep in a project, or just received your airworthiness certificate—it is going to be a great learning opportunity,” said Charlie Becker, EAA’s director of chapters and homebuilt community manager.
The company says the virtual presentations are open, free of charge, to everyone interested in building an aircraft. Each day includes six presentations, starting at 11:30 a.m. Central Time; they run through 8:30 p.m. The live sessions will also allow plenty of time for attendee questions, says EAA, and recordings will be archived and available to EAA members for review after the week’s presentations are completed.
