First Wing

A planned gift to EAA Aviation Foundation is a great way to provide valuable and perpetual support to the association. Those who notify EAA Aviation Foundation of their intention of leaving a gift of at least $5,000 from their estate to the association become eligible for recognition in First Wing.

When you include a designation for EAA Aviation Foundation in your estate, you celebrate and honor your passion for flight and ensure that the next generation will have EAA Aviation Foundation to nurture their passion.

To recognize this level of committment to the association, First Wing members receive recognition in the EAA Aviation Museum and invitations to special events throughout the year.
