Happy Holidays from EAA!


Let the Bidding Begin – EAA's Online Auction
The holiday season allows us to reflect on the year gone by, with all its highlights and unexpected turns, as well as the people who made the previous 12 months unforgettable. I find myself doing that not only personally, but as a grateful member and leader of this unique EAA community within aviation.

First on my gratitude list are the thousands of EAA members and volunteers who support and promote aviation in your hometowns and throughout the country. Whether you are an EAA chapter leader, fly kids as a Young Eagles pilot, lend support as a technical counselor or flight advisor, or participate in growing aviation in any other way, thank you. EAA has its highest ever membership because of the example you set and The Spirit of Aviation that you share.

I’m also grateful for our professional staff at EAA headquarters that works with their fellow members every day in countless ways. We had an opportunity this month to gather for the holiday photo you see here. Together we make Oshkosh a special place for all of aviation, not just each summer during AirVenture but throughout the year.

Undoubtedly, there are opportunities and challenges ahead in the new year. The EAA community is strong and ready to face them with innovation and a positive outlook. We have much that we are thankful for and even more for which we are hopeful.

On behalf of everyone at EAA headquarters, I wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and much joy during this holiday season.

Jack Pelton
