EAA director Fred Telling discussed the EAA Founders' Wing Saturday with a group of EAA chapter representatives during the Chapter Leaders Breakfast, held in the EAA AirVenture Museum. Telling, chairman of the Founders' Wing fund-raising committee, was joined on stage by EAA Founder Paul Poberezny and Charles Harris, another member of the committee, as they described the importance of preserving EAA's rich heritage. "The EAA Founders' Wing is the perfect opportunity to thank Paul and Audrey Poberezny for everything they've accomplished," Harris said.

The EAA Founders' Wing, which is scheduled to be completed in 2009 and will be located in the AirVenture Museum, will showcase Paul's collection of memorabilia that holds the history of EAA in archived letters, pictures, artifacts, media clippings, and much more.

"It is important that, now, in their lifetime, we thank Paul and Audrey for the role they have played in not only changing the individual lives of members but the path of general aviation's growth in general," said Elissa Lines, vice president of EAA donor and business relations.
