EAA: Prepared to Meet the Challenges Facing Personal Aviation

4 | Letter from Rod Hightower

I am pleased to report that EAA completed its fiscal year in sound financial condition, and we are hard at work building a vibrant and growing aviation community. We’re creating aviators, enriching the lifestyle of active aviators, creating a sense of belonging and hosting the world’s greatest aviation event. Despite economic doldrums, including sky-high aviation fuel prices that continue to pressure all who fly, EAA is progressing. The fact that EAA has increased its membership during this difficult period is powerful evidence that we are on the right track and positively impacting aviation. In 2011, through improvements to our AirVenture site, and reprioritized financial controls and planning, EAA enjoyed a very successful AirVenture. That performance paved the way for even more site improvements and staffing improvements to ensure that AirVenture 2012 would also be a solid success. EAA ended our fiscal year with a total of 177,113 members, an increase of 4.9 percent compared to the previous year. That is significant growth, but when you consider what’s happening to the overall pilot population, EAA is gaining among the remaining active pilot population at an impressive rate. The Young Eagles program that began in 1993 as a way to celebrate the centennial of flight has grown into the most successful youth aviation program the country has ever experienced. By the beginning of this year, EAAers had given more than 1.7 million young people a flight as part of the Young Eagles program. Today, many of those continued on to earn more advanced certificates and ratings, and 7 percent of pilots under 35 were once Young Eagles. We are moving the needle with this program, transforming a young person’s introduction to flying into a lifetime of aviation. But it doesn’t come cheap. EAAers, of course, donate their time and the expense of operating their airplanes to provide the Young Eagle flights. And here at EAA we must spend more than $1 million each year on the insurance premium alone to protect Young Eagle volunteer pilots and chapter operations. Air Academy has been described by past attendees as “one of the most impactful experiences of my life.” Youth between the ages of 12 and 18 participate in a “camp” experience that is unique in all of aviation. Combining the learning and fun of aviation, these young people are exposed to exemplary role models for not only success in aviation, but for success in life.

EAA Scholarships are often the essential ingredient to enable young people to chose aviation as a career. Each year we provide more than $300,000 to young people who are charting their personal paths to success in aviation.

Advocacy We at EAA have built very solid relations with regulators at the FAA, and with safety researchers and advisors at the NTSB, and our efforts pay off consistently because we advocate in the right way on the right issues that matter for our members. I spearheaded an effort for EAA to join together with other aviation associations to speak to legislators and regulators with a united voice. Each aviation association has unique priorities that it focuses on, but together we are a force that carries more weight in Washington. We call this new cooperation Stronger Together, and we are.

Chapters There are nearly 1,000 EAA chapters spread across the country, and a handful that have been established in other nations. This chapter network is the solid and essential link between EAA headquarters and the real world flying community of our members. We all gravitate toward others who share our particular passion for our favorite type of flying, building, and aircraft. The variety of interests our chapter members represent are necessary in sustaining the EAA “big tent” that welcomes and serves all aviators. Publications Two years ago our flagship EAA Sport Aviation magazine was redesigned to emphasize the beautiful photos we are rightly known for. As part of that transformation the content of Sport Aviation was also expanded in total number of pages, and in the variety of aviation topics covered.


Young Eagles and our other youth education programs are fundamental to the future of personal aviation. But so is attracting the person now in their 40s and 50s. Replacing a pilot grounded due to age with one in their 40s or 50s is crucial. And that’s why we have launched our Eagle Flight program to introduce adults to the fun, excitement, and usefulness of personal flying. These people are at a time in their lives where they can act on a latent desire to learn to fly. And once engaged, they tend to participate quickly. Most importantly, as we build on the success of the last year, we need to grow an EAA that offers value and involvement for all who fly, or want to fly, build or restore, or simply want to be a part of the aviation community. The “E” in EAA stands for Experimental, but it is also important that we think of that “E” as the first letter in Everyone. Our future, and the future of personal aviation, relies on attracting and engaging the widest possible group of people who share our passion for all things aviation. Together I know we can do it.

5 | EAA Annual Report

Our Greatest Challenge Ahead It’s impossible to nail down the exact average—or more importantly median—age of today’s active pilots, but it is not young. The median age of a pilot active in personal aviation is surely in the mid-50s, if not older. Nearly half of EAA members have reached their 65th birthday. No matter how you look at it, replacing ourselves, today’s active aviator and EAA member, is the primary challenge for personal aviation to continue.

2nd Annual International Learn to Fly Day EAA chapters and other aviation organizations hosted 200 events during the International Learn to Fly Day in May. Thanks to the efforts of these chapters, tens of thousands of people participated in the events that provided complimentary adult orientation flights. EAA is a leader in the effort to introduce the fun and freedom of flight to people of all ages, thanks to the outpouring of support from aviators throughout the nation and world. Grassroots Pilot Tours During the first year of Grassroots Pilot Tours, EAA President and CEO Rod Hightower and other senior leader team members made more than 150 chapter visits, where they discussed leading aviation issues and how EAA is working to grow participation in aviation. Chapter Leaders Academy Ninety-three chapter leaders graduated from Chapter Leaders Academy in 2011, bringing the total number of graduates to 445 since the program’s inception. The academy is an interactive workshop weekend focused on topics important to chapter leaders, including recruitment, fundraising, public relations, and EAA resources and programs. Building upon its 60 years of experience, EAA is able to share best-in-class practices with the new leaders of aviation’s largest and most impactful community of aviators, which is essential to sustaining EAA as a world-class organization. In 2012: • The Chapter Leadership Academy will hit the road. • EAA staff will be making regional visits to chapters. • EAA will be providing chapters with tools to grow, including the introduction of Eagle Flights.

8 | EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011

Aviation’s Family Reunion EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011 was a spectacular event. Compared to 2010, attendance was up, with 541,000 people enjoying the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration. 2011 also marked a huge increase in aircraft arrivals and campers who stayed on the AirVenture grounds. The trend of staying onsite has become well-established in recent years as a good way to maximize the AirVenture experience and enjoy old friends, while making new ones. Centennial of Naval Aviation AirVenture 2011 served as one of the largest celebrations of naval aircraft and brought together the largest collection of naval aircraft ever seen at one event in celebration of the 100th year of naval aviation. AirVenture’s “Navy Day” featured an air show dedicated to naval aircraft, and several naval presentations took place throughout the day, including a discussion with astronauts and former naval pilots Gene Cernan and Jim Lovell.

Boeing 787 Makes First Appearance If it happens in aviation, it happens at AirVenture. That was truly evident with one of the most exciting aircraft at AirVenture 2011, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which made its North American debut. Never before could aviation fans tour this aircraft, and thousands flocked to Conoco Phillips Plaza to get a first-hand view of the airplane. Its oneday stop in Oshkosh was one of the highlights of the week and one of the most popular draws for guests.

Technological Advances 2011 marked a turning point for EAA in terms of guest services, as it introduced a free Sporty’s App for smartphones and tablets. This app allowed guests to access maps of the grounds, schedules of events, and even NOTAMs for arrival and departure procedures. EAA also introduced a text message alert system to inform guests of severe weather and AirVenture features, such as special aircraft arrivals and airshow lineups, by simply sending text messages to guests’ cell phones. Tributes to Two of Aviation’s Greats AirVenture paid tribute to two individuals who have shaped the history of aviation: Burt Rutan and Bob Hoover. The collection of aircraft designed by legendary designer Burt Rutan that made the journey to Oshkosh for the tribute provided a special treat for the Homebuilts’ section and numbered more than 100. This brought the Homebuilts close to an all-time record with 974 total aircraft throughout the week. One of the air show performances centered on Rutan’s legacy of aircraft design, a day was set aside to mark one of Rutan’s most famous accomplishments – the 25th anniversary of the Voyager’s trip around the world in 1986. Known as one of the “founding fathers of modern aerobatics,” Hoover is a member of the National Aviation Hall of Fame and has a flying career dating back to World War II. An air show focused on planes Hoover flew throughout his career, and the Warbirds in Review presentation featuring Hoover brought in more than 1,000 guests – one of the largest crowds the program has ever hosted.

EAA Sport Aviation Members report that EAA Sport Aviation magazine is their favorite benefit of EAA membership, and EAA continues to improve the magazine. Sport Aviation features expanded coverage to encompass all EAA member interests and has a greater focus on telling the story of the contemporary experimental amateur aircraft builder. The magazine also is now available to a growing list of FBOs, which helps spread the story of EAA and its members. Experimenter Design of a new online Experimenter magazine began during 2011 to replace the online newsletter of the same name, with the first issue of the new online magazine rolling out in September 2012. Online Experimenter is focused on the amateur aircraft builder and is free to any EAA member. The Experimenter title has been applied to a variety of EAA publications over the years, including the original monthly magazine created by EAA Founder Paul Poberezny.

14 | EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011

NTSB air show hearing The tragic crash that resulted in the death of EAA Director Jimmy Leeward and a number of spectators at the Reno National Championship Air Races in September 2011 called national attention to air race safety. A proactive relationship with the NTSB has since been forged with efforts to better understand the factors that cause accidents and the implementation of lessons learned throughout the aviation industry. EAA President and CEO Rod Hightower and Vice President of Advocacy and Government Relations Sean Elliott testified during hearings at NTSB Washington as part of an industry panel on air shows and air racing, highlighting the high level of professionalism and safety that exists in the air show industry.

Pilot’s Bill of Rights In an effort to safeguard the rights of pilots, EAA, along with the AOPA, helped craft key provisions of the Pilot’s Bill of Rights. EAA and AOPA also gathered bipartisan support for the bill, which ensures pilots can obtain FAA case documents, proceed under a presumption of innocence, and have a more direct appeal line to the courts in order to properly defend themselves during an enforcement action. As of the end of EAA’s 2012 fiscal year, the bill had passed in the Senate and was introduced in the House of Representatives.

Advocacy


16 | EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011

Medical Petition More than 15,000 public comments were made in support of the EAA/AOPA medical petition for exemption, which, if granted, will allow pilots who fly recreationally to operate their aircraft without the need to obtain a costly FAA 3rd Class medical certificate. The heart of the petition proposes that a required online aeromedical training program will teach pilots how to access their fitness to fly and actually provide a higher level of health awareness than the Third Class medical certificate does for those who fly to the recreational standard. FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 EAA advocated for the act, which included Vintage Aircraft Data Release legislation and Residential Through-the-Fence legislation. First, the act allows owners of vintage aircraft reasonable access to aircraft safety data and drawings and plans of aircraft that are no longer supported by an aircraft manufacturer. The act also allows general aviation airport operators and aircraft owners to negotiate in good faith and grant authority for home/hangars located adjacent to airport property, but not on airport property, to gain access for flight purposes. Alexander Amendment EAA advocated for the defeat of the Transportation Appropriations Bill “Alexander Amendment,” which would have restricted flight over national parks. Had the amendment not been defeated, it would have eliminated the FAA’s long-standing authority to regulate all national air space. Block Aircraft Registration Request (BARR) EAA backed full reinstatement of BARR by filing an amicus brief in support of a legal challenge filed by NBAA and AOPA against the FAA and the Department of Transportation’s efforts to dismantle the program. BARR is used to block public viewing of flight paths of any airplane flying the system by anyone who has access online, and thanks to Congressional action, those using BARR can continue doing so without interference. New blocking requests will be accepted.

18 | Knowledge & Information

Webinars & Hints for Homebuilders In its effort to grow participation in aviation, EAA has focused on knowledge and information programs to teach people how to learn to fly, learn to build an aircraft, learn to maintain an aircraft, and learn how to fly as safely as possible. This information is part of a growing library of programs available to members. In 2011, just short of 11,700 people attended live webinars, and more than 83,000 people accessed webinar archives. Webinars, which are delivered approximately once per week, provide information on piloting, building and history, as well as provide training to chapters. The popular Hints for Homebuilders online video series reached a record, with 2.5 million views since the series’ inception. SportAir Workshops Many EAA members dream of taking flight in their own amateur built experimental aircraft, and SportAir Workshops provide the training needed to do just that. In 2011, 1,372 people participated in 101 classes throughout the United States and Canada. These workshops are ranked highest among all EAA programs, with the average attendee satisfaction ranking reaching 4.89 out of a total of 5 points. Forums In June, EAA launched online forums on a new site, which resulted in steady and consistent growth in participation. About 6,500 people are engaged in the forums that include healthy discussions about EAA, advice to first-time AirVenture guests, advice to those learning to fly or building their first airplane, and problem-solving/troubleshooting tips on all manner of aviation-related topics. The forums provide an avenue to track the emergence of new pilots and homebuilders and provide a public learning experience, even for those members not actively participating in discussions. In 2012: • EAA will enhance its website to provide a better user experience. • Increased support and availability of mobile products. • Participation in social media channels is expected to increase. • “TIG Welding: Chromoly” DVD to be released on ShopEAA.com. • The curriculum for SportAir Workshops will be enhanced.

Young Eagles In 2011, 551 chapters held 1,619 Young Eagles rallies. A total of 77,252 Young Eagles were flown during the year. During the past two decades, more than 1.7 million Young Eagles have taken flight. Seven percent of pilots under the age of 35 are former Young Eagles. EAA is in the second year of the Young Eagles Flight Plan, which provides an EAA Student Membership until the Young Eagles’ 19th birthday, and a flight training ground school through Sporty’s Pilot Shop at no cost to the participant. Upon completing the second phase of the Sporty’s course, participants receive a voucher from EAA, redeemable for their first flight lesson. Beyond the first flight lesson, EAA offers a host of Air Academy, flight training and post-secondary scholarships. During this fiscal year, EAA recorded: • 15,546 EAA student members • 12,659 Young Eagles enrolled in the Next Step online flight training course • 452 Young Eagles completed the online flight training course • 392 First Flight Lesson vouchers were issued • 29 Young Eagles enrolled in our Next Step program earned their private pilot’s license Air Academy Reaches Record EAA’s Air Academy camps reached record enrollment in 2011 with 376 students participating. These week-long camps introduce students to aviation through participation in a series of activities, getting up close and personal with aircraft, and experiencing an airplane flight. The Air Academy Lodge also houses many youth education programs throughout the year, serving school groups, scouting and other youth programs. More than 750 students participated in overnight education programs in our lodge. In 2012: • The Young Eagles program will celebrate its 20th anniversary. • Approximately 78,000 Young Eagles will experience their first flight.

Our business partners In addition to donors and volunteers, our business partners play an important role in the financial health of EAA. Sponsors, exhibitors, and advertisers committed more than $9.7 million in 2011, an investment that helped support and fund educational programs and advocacy efforts. The support from business partners also allows EAA to keep its dues low and AirVenture admissions affordable.

Our volunteers EAA could not successfully plan, coordinate or execute its programs, services and day-to-day operations without the dedication of volunteers. Nearly 4,800 people volunteered their time at AirVenture 2011, the EAA AirVenture Museum owes considerable gratitude to its 101 docents who help guide visitors through aviation’s history and Pioneer Airport continued to bring the “Golden Age” of aviation to life with the help of more than 50 volunteers.
