About Us - EAI
Experimental Aircraft Info started when friends were asking me questions like: "I'm planning a flight to airport such and such on this or that date. Do you know where to find the latest weather en route and information for that airport ......?". I'm sure you'll recognize this. Thus the idea for this website was born.
EAI aims to provide concise information on several interesting subjects for pilots and other aviation enthousiasts, thus refreshing once learned knowledge and not pretending to be a full fledged pilots course. The level is comparable to that of a commercial pilot license (CPL), where needed we will delve deeper explaining subjects further. Articles will be to the point and whetting your appetite for more, leaving you to study the topic further at your own pace.
So, if you have enjoyed and found this site useful, consider a donation. This will keep its information free of any membership. Thanks!
Anyway, have fun reading, flying, building and stay tuned for updates.

Content Delivery Network
Our content is delivered via the CloudFlare CDN and this increases our website speed as users will connect to a data center close-by where our site is then cached. This system also protects against malicious activity from spammers, botnets, DDOS attacks and other vulnerabilities.
Testing has been done on Mobile Web Browsers, Google Chrome, Mozilla 1.7 / Firefox, Opera and Safari, Netscape Navigator 9.x (the final version), Konqueror 3.5, Flock 2.5.6, Maxthon 3.x, MS Internet Explorer 9, 10 and 11 (as IE8 and lower are not W3C compliant, so please do update!) browsers under Windows 200(0/3/8/12) / XP / Vista / Windows 7 and 8 and several 32 and 64 bit Linux Desktop operating systems.
To maintain a good user experience we recommend a minimum resolution of 1152x864 pixels and the pages will expand no wider than 1190 pixels to maintain the Fibonacci sequence (Golden ratio 1,618) with the side menu for layout purposes.
Due to the layout of the site we support mobile devices with screen sizes from 7.0" and up (resolution 1024X600 with one zoom out level). On devices with smaller displays the site will work but readability will be impaired.
