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 EAAaviation 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 50+ aircraft
  • Provided scholarships to young people to attend the EAA Air Academy
  • Awarded 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. 
  • Offered countless workshops, seminars, cookouts, fly-ins and fly-outs.

Most recently, our chapter has acquired our own hangar at Skypark, the Ryerson Hangar, and had a Titan T-51 Mustang donated to the chapter. We are excited about using them to launch new programs and events. Skypark is located on Greenwich Rd., Wadsworth, OH. Turn onto Kane Rd, and at the end, turn right into the airport. See the map at right to find our hangar at Skypark.

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.
