Charles W. Harris
Youth Aviation Center

Coming July 2024!

“Dream It and Let Your Spirit Soar”

The Vintage Aircraft Association’s Charles W. Harris Youth Aviation Center is slated to open at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024 and will serve as an exciting place for future generations of aviation. Kids and teens will be able to take part in educational programs and workshops, as well as meet other people their age who share their interests. The building will be air-conditioned and sound-proof to allow for programs to take place regardless of outside noise. The Charles W. Harris Youth Aviation Center will be a valuable addition not only to the Vintage area in years to come, but also to the education of the young people who benefit from it.
