Welcome to Chapter 245


Important Updates

Due To COVID-19, all Meetings Are Now Conducted Using Zoom

Please contact President@eaa245.org for access to the presentation.





President's Message:

Well, as you probably are aware we are now in a lockdown situation in the province. As such, we cannot have any gatherings at the chapter hangar, and this includes working on the Zenith. It really sucks as the Zenith team have been doing great work.

If you ARE at the hangar for whatever reason, you know the drill: wear masks, practice social distancing, no kissing, etc. These new strains of COVID are particularly nasty....

The province is going to re-evaluate in 28 days which will just be taking us into warmer weather so let's all keep our fingers crossed and, please, stay safe.

Hope to see you in a month
