About EAA Chapter 113


EAA Chapter 113 was founded in May 1961 at its present location at Mettetal Airport in Canton, Michigan. Originally, Chapter meetings were held in the basements of members homes.  Eventually, a small Quonset hut was built that was large enough to hold one small plane.


Since then, the EAA Chapter 113 facility has grown into a modern, aviation center that includes a meeting room, workshop and library.  Programs such as Young Eagles, educational scholarships, and weekly activities, have helped us grow to include members from around the world


Throughout the years, our members have completed over 100 different aircraft.  So whether you are looking to build, restore, fly, or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our chapter.  We 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.
