EAA AirVenture 2014- Oshkosh, Wisconsin
Remembering Paul Poberezny


The EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) was founded by Paul Poberezny in 1953, from his home in Hales Corners, Wisconsin. He was the driving force behind many of the activities at the EAA. Paul had a military career with the US Air Force for 30 years, including service in WWII and Korea. His flying career had him fly over 500 aircraft types, accumulating over 30,000 hours of flying time. He also design, modified and built a number of airplanes. Paul passed away in August 2013 of cancer. There were many memorials to him over the course of the week through flying demonstrations, displays and memorial services. His legacy will live on through the EAA.
