“EAA Chapters are the local aviation families throughout the nation,” said Rose Ellen May, EAA Chapter 241 secretary. “We welcome anyone who sees something special every time an airplane flies overhead and wants to meet others who share that enthusiasm for the unique experience of flight. We have quite a few events scheduled for this summer. ”
EAA Chapters are the backbone of the international EAA organization, which has more than 170,000 members. The local organizations include general EAA Chapters as well as specialized chapters for vintage aircraft, warbird, ultralight and aerobatic flight enthusiasts.
