Chapter 162

Chapter Projects

Local EAA chapters allows you to share your interest with thousands of other members in a variety of different events and activities, including fly-ins, picnics, workshops, Young Eagles rallies, and more. As part of that, our members have their own projects that may interest you and/or they request help with. This page is dedicated to those projects.

NOTICE : COVID-19 Update

Due to the ongoing COVID-19, we will pause our in person meetings, as per EAA National. We will meet on ZOOM for our board meetings and membership monthly meetings.
Once Nashville TN is allowing us back to normal operations, we will reexamine the situation and find a suitable place to hold our in person meetings once again.
