Jim goes WACO at EAA

The Director of Wild Studies, Jim Jordan, attended the Experimental Aircraft Association's (EAA) Air Venture Oshkosh, in Oshkosh Wi., July 2008 to do developmental work on a TV show about the lifestyle of general aviation pilots in an effort to encourage more young people to consider learning to fly. During his visit, he flew a new reproduction of a 1939 WACO biplane for promo film footage. Jim's motto: "Live life, don't let it live you!!!"


EAA was founded in 1953 by the Poberezny family and a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own airplanes. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircrafts, ultralights, helicopters and contemporary manufactured aircrafts. Check out EAA's websites www.eaa.org and www.airventure.org
