General Membership Meeting

There will be a general membership meeting after the induction ceremony, to conduct two votes:

  1. The first vote is for the 4 open BOD Member at Large positions. The candidates are: Fred Huppertz, Kathi Parks, Frankie Rodriguez, Gay Roberts, John Post and Jimmie Rickerson. We will also be electing 2 BOT positions. The candidates are; Bill Miller and Damian Morrissy

  1. The second vote is for the chapter members to approve the spending of necessary funds to bring the current 601D aircraft up to airworthy standards with the goal of selling the finished aircraft to a flying club currently in the planning stages.

Christmas Party

We will be decorating for the Christmas Party on Thursday, December 3rd, during the BOT meeting, starting at 7pm.

Everyone is invited to help with decorating the hangar.

With the Covid-19 pandemic safety is of importance and we believe that our traditional food service activities, primarily the sharing of side dishes, is not feasible.

We think the fellowship associated with our Christmas party is important and have decided that the food service activities are centered on a pizza party; to include several varieties of pizzas, salad and deserts. We also will provide non-alcoholic beverages. You are welcome to bring your own wine or beer.

Gathering will be at 6pm with pizza at 6:30pm

There is no cost to attend the Christmas Party dinner.

John Morgan is working on the Christmas Program.

Awards will be presented at the party.

We also plan on pre-recorded Christmas music.

Any individuals that would like to assist John in the program development, please contact him at

Please help us plan for the dinner by emailing the total number of persons in your party

We will also virtually present Duane's induction ceremony and the Christmas party.  Stay tuned for the future notice about how to join the virtual presentations

Reminder from Matt Smith: Runway 7/25 will NOW be CLOSED on: 

Friday, November 20, 2020 at 9:00 p.m. local time.  Runway 7/25 will remain closed for the entire weekend until Monday, November 23, 2020 at 7:00 a.m. local time.

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.

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
