membership was composed of people who
were enthusiasts or flying airplanes they had
built or certified airplanes that were for personal or educational use. The membership
today is still composed of that same group.
Sounds a lot like Dream Build Fly, doesn’t it?
Dreamers are enthusiasts, whether
pilots or not. They are the members who
have the passion of aviation living in them,
and they can’t wait to see the next air show,
attend the next movie that might have an
airplane in it, take in the National Aerobatic
Championships, or bring their children to
“airport days” to become the next Young
Eagle. The enthusiasts are a large faction of
the membership of EAA. Without the
enthusiast, we lose the dream. Without the
dream, we lose EAA as we know it.
of aviation history, and the stories need to
be preserved for future generations to be
able to relive through restoration and pre-
sentation of vintage aircraft.

As pilots, we are able to
come together to share

EAA Sport Aviation 02-2012.indd 1
Builders are the amateur-built experimental
folks, the vintage restorers, and the warbird
rescuers. The baseline of EAA and its founding members is this group. The craftsmen
who produce the work and possess the skill
in this community are an inspiration to others to join in the fun that comes with EAA
membership. Being a part of the builder
community brings a strong sense of pride,
and each community should feel this way.
Where would the Corsairs and Spitfires
be if the warbird community didn’t have its
sense of pride in presenting these treasures
during air shows or restored to perfection
in a flying museum? “Keep ’em Flying” is
the mantra. A proud community that wants
to share its love of aviation’s power with the
world is what it’s all about.
The vintage and classic community has
a love affair with aviation’s past. Seeing
these graceful old airplanes take to the sky
at a local grass strip is something to behold
for the history taking place right in front of
you. So much has been written in the halls
Fliers are the biggest group composing the
EAA membership. Whether you fly a Kolb,
Grumman Tiger, DC- 3, or Edge 540, you’re
a flier. See where this is going? As pilots, we
are able to come together to share our passion in aviation. We can watch it spread
from community to community and are
able to lend a hand to one another when in
need. It’s not them against us in any situation. We’re all aviation people, whether we
dream, build, or fly.
Those three words tell us how we
should present ourselves as EAA members,
and how we can bring more participation
in the aviation world. The romance of aviation is often thought of as a rich man’s
hobby. While aviation is certainly not an
inexpensive hobby, compare it to the
weekend fisherman, the amateur race car
driver, the sportsman, or, in the case of my
wife and her passion, the dog show world.
Aviation is just as accessible to you as any
hobby—it starts with a dream. If that
dream leads to building an airplane, having
your first flight lesson, or taking the next
step in your flying career to learn aerobatics, so be it. If it leads to you becoming a
volunteer at The World’s Greatest Aviation
Celebration, EAA AirVenture Oshkosh,
even better! You don’t have to be a builder,
restorer, rescuer, or even pilot to be an
enthusiast—just a dreamer. That’s where it
starts. If you have it, join in the fun!
Dream Build Fly is the Experimental
Aircraft Association. Where else can you
find an organization steeped in aviation
fun, with such a sense of community
among the membership? We all have a
dream. Where does yours fit? Find it right
here in EAA.
