What is EAA?
The Experimental Aircraft Association is an organization that promotes all forms of recreational aviation. The EAA was organized in 1953 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by some individuals who were interested in building their own aircraft. Over the years it has grown to include all types of aircraft, from ultralights to commercially manufactured aircraft. An interest in aviation is the common denominator that brings our people together, in good fellowship and sharing. The EAA is a national organization and has local chapters, such as ours, all over the world. You don't have to be a pilot to join in, the only requirement is a love for aviation. Chapter monthly meetings are on the First Saturday of Every Month. HEY! Join our Facebook Group!

In Loving Memory of Bob Rogers
In the vast expanse of sky, where dreams take flight, Two souls soared together, their spirits alight. Through turbulence and calm, they navigated the blue, Their bond unbreakable, their friendship true. They shared the cockpit, side by side, Guiding their metal steed with skill and pride. The wind whispered secrets, the clouds held their trust, As they chased the horizon, leaving earthly dust. In the cockpit banter, laughter took flight, Stories of adventures, of stars in the night. They faced the unknown, their courage unwavering, Two pilots, two friends, their legacy engraving. And when the final flight came, as all journeys must, They parted ways, but their memories would trust. For in the tapestry of time, their names forever etched, Two aviators, two friends, their spirits stretched. So raise a toast to the skies, where they now soar, Their wings of friendship forevermore. In memory of your dear friend, the pilot who flew, May the heavens echo their laughter, their bond renewed.
