Homebuilders Week – Online Event Starts January 23
An online opportunity to learn about all aspects of building your own aircraft
By Charlie Becker, EAA Homebuilt Community Manager
EAA will be hosting our third annual Homebuilders Week online learning event for aircraft builders:
(www.EAA.org/HomebuildersWeek). It will be five straight days of educational forums covering a broad
spectrum of aircraft building topics. It will start on Monday, January 23, 2023, and run until Friday,
January 27, 2023. The live online presentations will be open to everyone interested in building their own
aircraft. Sessions will start at 11:30 a.m. CST and run until 8:30 p.m. CST daily.
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
EAA is working with industry experts, kit manufacturers, and other subject matter experts to provide
top-notch material for builders. The sessions will be live and allow time for attendee
questions. Recordings will be archived and available to EAA members for review.
EAA Homebuilders Week coincides with the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Experimental
Aircraft Association in 1953. Those founding members of EAA lit the fuse on the homebuilt movement
that provides affordable access to aircraft ownership and today has spread worldwide.
EAA Homebuilders Week is possible through the generous sponsorships of Aircraft Spruce & Specialty
Co., Dynon, Scheme Designers, Inc., and Van’s Aircraft, Inc.

It would probably be best to check out the EAA National web site to get a better idea of what is going on as their way of showing what is offered is much more clear.
