EAA Chapter 878

Welcome to Chapter 878

February 2021

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.

Learn to fly!!  Or need brushing up on your aviation skills?  Want to rent an airplane?  EAA Chapter 878 member Jim Shadduck is starting Legacy Pilot Training LLC at Maple Lake Airport (KMGG) aka Bill Mavencamp Sr. Airport.  Contact him at cell 952-210-6250 or email LegacyPilotTraining@gmail.com to schedule an appointment or for more information!  Please print and post this flyer at local businesses.

While we are all confined to home, youth may be interested in the "Weather Minds" classes on YouTube, which include brief videos of Airplane Flight Data, Blizzards, Thunder, Rainbows, etc., and each ends with a book about the subject read by one of the KARE 11 meteorologists.  Adults, too, can learn from the lessons!


The Young Eagles group flights for 2020 are completed, but individual flights may be arranged.  Click for flyer or contact Kyle Weatherly for information:  612-759-5227 or k.weatherly@live.com
