Summer Fun Awaits at
EAA Air Academy!
The EAA Air Academy is a fun-filled aviation camp experience for youth ages 12-18.
From the moment campers arrive, an immersive journey into the world of flight unfolds and close friendships with fellow aviation enthusiasts begin.
For many, the Air Academy becomes an important stepping stone for personal development and appreciation for aviation.
Glenn Curtiss is one of the most significant names in the early history of aviation, and a great rival of the Wright Brothers. One of his most significant contributions was the development of the aileron. Manufactured in Hammondsport, NY, the Museum’s 1911 Curtiss Pusher is one of the oldest original airplanes in our collection. It was once owned by John Kaminski, the first licensed pilot in Wisconsin and later owned by Dale Crites of Waukesha, WI, who regularly flew it at air shows.
