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.
EAA is a growing and diverse international organization with a wide range of aviation interests. Originally founded in 1953 by a group of individuals involved in building their own airplanes, through the years it has transformed into a wide group interested in everything aviation.
EAA Chapter 897 Dodge County Flyers is a group of people located in the Greater Dodge County Area interested in building, maintaining, and flying a wide variety of airplanes from homebuilts such as RV's to Antique's such as Waco Biplanes. We also welcome anyone that has any level of interest in aviation, from ultralights to Warbirds to military and airline flying.
