Sophia is also heavily involved in EAA’s volunteer community. Congrats Sophia!

Ninety years ago today, Charles Lindbergh departed Roosevelt Field in New York for his legendary flight to Paris, becoming the first person to fly the transatlantic route nonstop. He made the astonishing 33.5 hour solo flight in the Spirit of St. Louis, an unstable airplane with no forward visibility. Recently EAA’s staff writer had the chance to fly in our very own Spirit replica.

While in Florida recently, staff from EAA decided to stop in at “America’s Seaplane City” during their Spring fly-in. The city started by building a top-quality seaplane facility on Lake Dora in the heart of downtown. The base has all the things required for seaplane operations. Special seaplane docks, a grass beaching area, and an amphibian ramp to taxi up from the water. It was a very fun time!
