EAA’s local chapters are about people, bringing together individuals interested in learning more about aviation as well as sharing their own knowledge.
Chapter members are involved in a variety of social and educational activities, including Young Eagles rallies, fly-ins, building seminars, and more, to build awareness in the community.
Who is EAA Chapter 551?
As the Chapter was developing the Scholarship and Fundraising Program, time was spent on the Chapter's mission statement.
