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 aviation 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. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest.
EAA Chapters have always been one of the most vital components in making general aviation fun, affordable and accessible at the local level. To recognize chapters that have demonstrated outstanding commitment to general aviation, EAA rolled out a Chapter Recognition Program in 2019. This recognition is based off eleven criteria that have shown to correlate with active and engaged chapters. Chapter 512 was recognized in 2019 as a Silver level chapter and again in 2020-2021 as a Gold level chapter by meeting 9 out of 11 of the criterion necessary. Congratulations to everyone for making us a vital, fun, committed EAA chapter!
