Anyone interested in aviation is welcome to attend our meetings and events. Over the past twenty-five years, our chapter members have built or restored more than twenty aircraft. An additional fifteen aircraft are currently under construction by our members.
We actively promote sport aviation to area youth through the EAA Young Eagles program. Chapter members have introduced more than 2,500 kids to aviation by taking them for donated aircraft rides, even giving them actual hands-on experience flying the aircraft. The second Saturday in June every year is International Young Eagles Day, and Chapter 846 always has activities scheduled that day. Check out the Calendar of Events for more details.
We meet at Skypark Airport every second Thursday of each month, beginning at 7 p.m. Our meetings cover a variety of topics, from hanger tours of current projects, to demonstrations on avionics or fiberglassing, to fascinating accounts from members of the aviation industry. Please check the calendar for the next meeting's program and future events.
Call Gary Baker, President, 330-321-6274, with any questions.
