November 11, 2021 Fellow EAA member looking for an ultralight


I am contacting your chapter in an attempt to locate Teratorn TA, an early 1980's ultralight for sale. Can you please inquire among your membership; even a partial or non-airworthy subject would be acceptable.

September 28, 2021 The Kitfox has been sold!


The following quote was passed along from Victoria, 

Our fair Kitfox has a new owner and is off to Idaho. I also want to express my appreciation and gratitude for EVERYONE who has donated time, energy and effort on this project.  I have had more fun than I ever could have imagined and learned a ton along the way as well.  Regardless of whether or not the Kitfox sells tomorrow – this is not the end of our learning journey.  It is our goal to replace the Kitfox with an aircraft that is closer to completion, cheaper to insure, and easier to get checked out in.  That could be next week, or it could be six months from now it just depends on finding the right project at the right price.“

Before you know it, there will be a new exciting opportunity for everyone to learn on. Wonder what it will be?

Antonin SoloOur Ray Aviation scholar for this year, and also a recipient of the Sundance Flight Academy Scholarship on September 19th, 2021, left the surly bonds of Earth and piloted an aircraft without the ever watchful eye of a flight instructor.

Lawson had soloed on his sixteenth birthday in January 2020 and has since been accumulating proficiency and flight training in a multiple aircraft.
