Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, we welcome you to attend our events and join our chapter. We are a group of aviation enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who get together with like minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community and have a lot of fun doing so.
Our chapter members range from professional pilots to students to men and women who have a passion for aviation. You don't have to be a pilot or own a plane to be a member - only an enthusiast.
EAA national in Oshkosh WI encourages its chapters to help grow our aviation community by building and repairing aircraft, teaching, taking individuals up for first time flights and getting the community involved. We host Young Eagle and Eagle flights where first time fliers get to fly up and are taught how an airplane works and what the control inputs do during flight. If you are interested in a Young Eagle flight (ages 8-17) or an eagle flight (ages 18 and up) please contact us. You can find our contact info under the “contact us” tab.
EAA national doesn’t require our chapter members to be EAA national members but they do encourage it. All officers are required to be active EAA national members.
