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, and serve the local aviation community.  We support the next generation of pilots and airmen by offering programs to introduce young people to aviation. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest. 

Over the last 34 years, our members have:

  • Built or restored 40+ aircraft
  • Provided scholarships to young people to attend the EAA Air Academy
  • One of the few chapters selected to offer a Ray Scholarship to a young person to help them achieve their private pilot's license.
  • Offered free airplane rides to over 3,000 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, and a Titan T-51 Mustang. We are excited about using them 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. Interested in joining us? Then fill out the Membership Application. We're looking forward to meeting you and hearing about your  aviation dreams.

Chapter 846 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
