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.

Monthly Chapter Meetings - FREE Coffee and Donuts!
Every Third Saturday of every month, we get together for our monthly Chapter meeting at the airport, for some great fellowship and fun.
