Many of us dream of owning and flying a classic aircraft someday. There are many
stories told about these vintage airplanes -- but what can you believe? EAA's
"Classic Evaluations" give you the straight scoop on these airplanes. Such
classic airplanes as Piper Cubs, Cessna 120s and 140s, Aeronca Champs and more are
reviewed. You'll find out what characteristics these airplanes have and what myths have
grown around them. You can sort out the facts from the "hangar stories" and --
who knows -- maybe find the vintage airplane of your dreams!
How will that homebuilt aircraft actually perform
in flight? Comparative Aircraft Flight Efficiency Inc. (CAFE) is a non-profit,
all-volunteer educational foundation sponsored and funded by EAA. It was founded
specifically to report performance capabilities of amateur-built aircraft. The CAFE
Foundation tests everything from cockpit layout and ground handling to flight stability
and landing tendencies. Those findings, including any problem areas, are then published as
a guide for those who are building or planning to building airplanes. Look for the most
popular homebuilt aircraft tested and reviewed by the CAFE Foundation.
