EAA’s Homebuilders Week


The EAA, after a successful Homebuilders Week in 2021, will run the program again this year, beginning on January 24. Here’s a link to the schedule of events.

“More than 16,000 people participated in this year’s first Homebuilders Week, far exceeding our expectations and making it an easy decision to bring the series back in 2022,” said Charlie Becker, EAA’s director of chapters and homebuilt community manager. “We’ve taken the input received from presenters and participants to improve our goal of sharing information and knowledge when it comes to constructing a safe and fun aircraft.”

The company says the virtual presentations are open, free of charge, to everyone interested in building an aircraft. “The six daily live presentations will begin at 11:30 a.m. Central Time each day (Monday through Friday) and continue until 8:30 p.m. It will include everything from getting started successfully to techniques when building with sheet metal, composites, steel, and wood. New and experienced builders will also find in-depth talks on panel planning, wiring, engine selection, FAA certification, and flight testing. The live sessions will also allow plenty of time for attendee questions. Recordings will be archived and available to EAA members for review after the week’s presentations are completed.”
