April 28, 2016 - Starting May 1, we challenge you to try something new. It’s that easy! Take someone on their first flight. Find a local EAA chapter and attend your first meeting. Land at an airport you’ve never visited. Try your hand at flying RC aircraft or building a model airplane. Work with an instructor to try that kind of flying you’ve always been curious about – tailwheel, seaplane, glider, powered parachute… The possibilities are endless, and we can’t wait to see what you do!

During the month of May, share a photo of your new experience on your favorite social media channel, and include the hashtag #AVChallenge. We’ll add your photos to an online album and share them across our digital and social channels to inspire and energize aviation enthusiasts around the world.

In April, we challenged you to visit an aviation museum, and you delivered! EAA Chapter 1361 members gathered for a fly-out to the Aerospace Museum of California – the weather was perfect for taking in the museum’s outdoor displays. Lucky EAA Chapter 221 holds its monthly meeting at the Air Zoo, and Dennis Spence shared photos from Texas’s Historic Aviation Memorial Museum and National Museum of the Pacific War. Check out the gallery for more.

We’ll present a new challenge every month; keep an eye on our website and social channels and join us in sharing The Spirit of Aviation!
