EAA Virtual Ultralight Days on February 22-24
Inaugural event commemorates 40th anniversary of Part 103 Ultralight rules
**EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (January 28, 2022) **— Experts from throughout the ultralight community will share their knowledge to those engaged in the lighter side of recreational aviation on February 22-24, as the inaugural EAA Virtual Ultralight Days hosts webinars open to all at no charge.
The 15 total webinars – five on each of the three days – are based on the highly successful format used during EAA Homebuilders Week and EAA’s popular webinar series. The live sessions will be hosted by well-known subject matter experts in the ultralight community, with question-and-answer periods to address specific questions.
“As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the FAA Part 103 regulations that created the modern ultralight movement, EAA Virtual Ultralight Days is a way to make our community stronger, safer, and more fun,” said Timm Bogenhagen, EAA Ultralight and Light Plane Community Manager. “This three-day event connects well with EAA’s mission to grow participation in aviation by sharing The Spirit of Aviation, inviting everyone to learn and develop their own skills and knowledge.”
Topics covered will include how to get started in Ultralights; how-to instructions on a variety of Ultralight aircraft like gyroplanes, powered parachutes, and trikes; and overall informative topics on maintenance, airport operations, safety inspections, and more. All sessions are free of charge to everyone, with the archived presentations available to EAA members afterward. Pre-registration is encouraged, with registration links and additional schedule information available at EAA.org/UltralightDays.
