EAA Chapter 846

Wadsworth, OH

Welcome to our Chapter

Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome 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. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest. 

Over the last 32 years, our members have:

  • Restored 20+ aircraft
  • Provided scholarships to young people to attend the EAA Air Academy
  • Offered free airplane rides to over 2,700 kids between the ages of 8-17 at our annual Young Eagles Day. 
  • Had countless workshops, seminars, cookouts, fly-ins and fly-outs.

Most recently, our chapter has acquired our own hangar at Skypark, the Ryerson Hangar. We are excited about using it to launch new programs and events. We love aviation and we would love to have you join us. For more information on our chapter, please contact our president via the contact information provided in the sidebar.
