authors, experts, and legends - who share their accumulated knowledge
with all who attend. It is the most comprehensive collection of aviation
knowledge available anywhere, and it’s all in one location, EAA
AirVenture Oshkosh. Learn
Homebuilding gets to the heart of EAA, and

the Sky Shoppe on the AirVenture grounds, and within the EAA AirVenture
Museum. It’s not just about great aviation books - though there are
plenty from which to choose. Author’s Corner is more about
special places where people from around the world drop by to converse
about flight, patriotism, and friendships.
Affordable Flying Center
Located in the former NASA building (north of the old control tower
adjacent to the Honda Forums Plaza), the Affordable Flight Center will
feature a mini forum area, indoor displays, and examples of Standard
Category aircraft like the Taylorcraft, Piper Colt/Tri-Pacer, etc., that
can provide an economical pathway to flight. EAA's staff of experts and
volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and provide information
to those seeking a less expensive way to pursue their aviation passion.
Learn to Fly Discovery Center
People pursuing the dream of becoming a pilot can receive inspiration, information, guidance, and a community of support at the Learn to Fly Center, which returns to EAA AirVenture this summer. EAA and its affiliate, the National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI), will have the area staffed with experts eager to answer questions and show skyward-gazing enthusiasts that the goal of personal flight is attainable.
Throughout the week of AirVenture, the Federal Pavilion will include exhibits, aircraft from the various government agencies, live radar and weather monitoring demonstrations, and interactive displays, including the Wright Flyer and NOAA Hurricane simulators.
