A Special Opportunity
Substantial gifts to the Experimental Aircraft Association, Inc.,  whether immediate or deferred, are recognized through membership in the First Wing. If you have already made a First Wing gift and purchase a brick in your own name or that of your family, your inscription will be italicized in recognition of your endowment gift. First Wing members are those farsighted individuals who are giving back to EAA, part of what they were given in order to perpetuate the love of flying for the next generation.
