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 flying enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who 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. We are the Central Massachusetts chapter of the EAA. The chapter meets once a month at the Minute Man Air Field (6B6) in Stow, Massachusetts and holds other activities on a regular basis. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest. Check out our Calendar page for our list of meetings and their location.
