EAA 690 wants to help some individuals form a flying club using a Zenith Zodiac 601 aircraft.  The chapter currently owns the aircraft kit and is willing to restore it to flying condition. The estimated expense for a Continental 200 engine and VFR avionics will allow the chapter to sell the flying aircraft for $25,000 or less. The chapter would assist the new owners in setting up guidelines for the aircraft to be used to promote aviation locally.

The chapter would also provide a long-term low interest loan to the new owners to keep their expenses to operate the aircraft as low as possible.

To qualify to be a club member you must have at least a private or sport pilot certificate and a current medical certificate.


Please contact John Morgan @ 770-823-1713 or e-mail to for more details. EAA 690 membership is not a requirement.

EAAEAAEAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 250 members, awarded EAA's top level Gold Chapter status, we offer a wide range of aviation-related activities on a regular basis. While the Pancake Breakfast and our monthly meetings are the norm, we also are heavily involved in youth education through EAA’s Young Eagles program and our youth programs, regularly conduct fly-ins, and host historical aircraft such as EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” and the Ford Tri-Motor



EAA 690 members are on SLACK!

There are many channels of which you may choose any number of interest or all of them. LEARN MORE


Young Eagles

Thank you... all the pilots, ground crew, and registration volunteers for our past Young Eagle rally.  If you haven't yet gotten involved, signup at  No prior experience necessary.


If working with youth is your interest, the Youth Aviation Build program needs additional mentors to support and grow the program. The Saturday program runs from 9 AM until 1 PM and could be the most rewarding thing you have ever done in aviation. You will never know until you try it
