EAA logoEAA is a growing and diverse international organization of more than 170,000 members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds. It was founded as the Experimental Aircraft Association in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wis., who were interested in building their own airplanes. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters and contemporary manufactured aircraft.

EAA's centennial celebration, Countdown to Kitty Hawk presented by Ford Motor Company, includes a series of activities to mark the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers' achievement. The centerpiece of this celebration is the flight of EAA's 1903 Wright Flyer reproduction the only accurate flying reproduction of the original at Kitty Hawk, N.C., on Dec. 17, 2003, 100 years to the date of that remarkable first flight.

Tom Poberezny, president and CEO of EAA, is a U.S. Centennial of Flight Commissioner.
