Chapter 857

Pittsburgh-Butler Region Experimental Aircraft Association

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 invite you to visit EAA Chapter 857 through the links listed to the left and consider either coming to our monthly meetings or else joining us at one of our tasty fly-in breakfasts.  

Our chapter and its members are frequently involved in different activities -- demonstrating building techniques, taking part in other aviation endeavors, improving the airport, building or rebuilding airplanes, or just sharing our knowledge and fondness for flying.  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.   Come for a visit; stay for the fun!

If you are a youth eight through seventeen years old and wish to experience a flight in a general aviation aircraft, then come to one of our Young Eagles days in June, August, and September and enjoy a no-cost ride in a general aviation aircraft.  Email using the Contact Us tab at left for more information regarding the Young Eagles program.

Our chapter, Pittsburgh-Butler Region Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 857, is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions to the chapter are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
