Sharing the Magic of Aviation - Aurora Municipal Airport (KARR) Aurora, IL

About Us



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!   

Our home and great supporter is now REVV Aviation at the Aurora Municipal Airport (KARR).

We thank SimplyFly Adventures for giving us a home for the last 10 plus years. 

David and Kathy Spano are two of the best people you ever want to meet!
