EAA’s Pilot Your Own Adventure Contest, supported by Flight Outfitters

Everyone who flies has a story to tell, and we want to hear yours, and, just maybe, share it with the world. Aviators around the world share a passion for adventure, relishing both the journey and the destination, and celebrating the fun, freedoms, and friendships of flight. Tell us the true-life tale of your favorite aviation getaway as part of EAA’s Pilot Your Own Adventure Contest, supported by Flight Outfitters, and you might just win the AirVenture camping experience of a lifetime, or one of several other exciting prizes.

To qualify, your story should be about a time that you, or someone in your party, flew a non-commercial, general aviation aircraft to partake in an experience that was fun, adventurous and inspiring and that was only made possible by the ability to fly. Maybe the destination was a weekend camping trip, a particularly memorable fly-in or a remote backwoods picnic. Or, maybe the adventure came from something experienced in-flight, such as seeing the Nazca Lines, Niagara Falls, or a pod of whales from the air. The inspiration might come from the companionship you shared, the fun you had at the destination, or the beauty of the flight itself that you were able to experience.

In addition, your story must be:

  • True — all entries must be non-fiction, based on real facts, real events, and real people.
  • At least 500 words, and no more than 1,000 words long.
  • Accompanied by a minimum of three and a maximum of six photographs with captions of no more than 30 words each.
  • Typed or handwritten, and must be legible, clear, and easy to read.
