EAA Chapter 898

Ocean County, NJ

Welcome to our chapter



Hello, my fellow Chapter Members,   Spring is here!  At least it presents itself  every couple of days.  Between unpleasant flying weather and the continued concerns over “social distancing,” it takes a bit of effort to remain enthusiastic about this passion we have for aviation.  However, our love for the flying and building of airplanes requires our attention regardless of these current conditions… SO LET’S GET ON WITH OUR LIVES AND ENJOY EACH AND EVERY DAY!!!!

As you know we have had to cancel the April and May Chapter meetings, but hopefully, we will meet again on June 2  for our first cook-out at hangar 27, Ocean County Airport.  Recognizing, as we must at this time, it is very important that I know whether you feel you could comfortably attend this meeting/BBQ.  We will take whatever precautions necessary to provide adequate room and disposable paper/plastic utensils, covered tables etcI need to know if you are interested in attending  and  the number of people who would attend with you.  Please contact me using either my email address or calling me at  732-330-3458 at least a week prior to this event to RSVP.

I am also looking for ideas to enhance the Hangar 27 BBQ meetings. If you have any thoughts regarding  low-energy meeting programs, I would  like to hear your ideas.  Please help your officers to plan meeting/activities of interest to you!

Another area which needs your  focus is our Scholarship Program for young, aspirating  aviators.  We have received several outstanding applications for Chapter 898 scholarships  this year.  We would like to give at least three $500 scholarships again this year.  Last evening one of our members, Ed Hamilton, generously gave us a check for part of this program.  I realize these are difficult times, however,  if you could contribute  additional support, this year, it would be greatly appreciated. Please send your donation to Bob Palamara, Treasurer.           ( 231 Quail Lane North, Lanoka Harbor. NJ  08734)
