EAA Chapter 579

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 SimplyFly Adventures at the Aurora Municipal Airport (KARR).
