  • Benefit the Orange County Airport - KMGJ, and other area general aviation airports

Please be our guest! Just come to our next gathering or event and see what we have going on. You don't need to be a pilot or be building an aircraft - Whether you simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, or fly, build, or restore, you are welcome to attend our events and join our Chapter.

Monthly chapter gatherings are the third Thursday of every month at the Orange County Airport pilot lounge. 6:30 p.m. social time, 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. chapter gathering. 

We welcome all to stop in and see us for a program, presentation, fly-in event, or come talk to us about getting a free Young Eagles flight for the younger folks (8-17), and if you are sincerely interested in aviation and have always wanted to learn to fly, a free EAA Eagle Flight Experience for yourself.
