SECTION 1 - APPLICANT INFO
First Name (can be nickname) *

Your answer
Date of Birth – Please enter in format: MM/DD/YYYY *
We need this info to calculate your age during or near the camp dates: The EAA Air Academy requires that camp attendees be age 16-18 during July 17-25, 2018. We have been able to get an exception from EAA if an applicant is within a couple weeks of their birthday, so if you will be almost 16 or just past 18 for the above camp date range, apply and if you are selected as a finalist, we will ask EAA if an exception can be made.

What is your GPA on your latest report card and what is the range of grades at your school? Feel free to explain, if needed. NOTE: We might ask for verification (copy of your report card) if you make it to Phase 2, so be honest. *
We are looking for well-rounded youth. While we are seeking the most aviation-passionate youth who work to earn some of their own flight-training money, that pursuit should NOT be at the expense of an education, so we expect our winners to have reasonably good grades, too.
