EAA Chapter 898

Ocean County, NJ

Welcome to our chapter




Greetings to the EAA 898 Members,

Many things have been accomplished this year that you, the Chapter Members, should be proud of!

What a fantastic TEAM EFFORT we had at our 2022 Young Eagle's Rallies.  Congratulations to Kurt Stofko for chairing such successful events.  And a big thank you to our wonderful pilots:  Ed Brick, Gene Bunt, Jim Candelletti, Kevin Douthitt, Larry Lawn, Bob Palamara, Rob Ricuitti, Wayne Romberg and Sarah Vetick.  Their enthusiasm and professionalism were exemplary and were appreciated by both the children and their parents.  Of course we had our terrific "ground crew" of Charlie Conley, Max Wohlrab, Debbie Hamilton, Betty Romberg, Len Roeber, Bill Murphy, Bill Martin, Kathy Francis, Mike Scotto and Arlene Newman.  Great Job everyone!!  

The Rusty Pilots Program, held in April at the Ocean County OEM with instructor Ted Spitzmiller, was well attended by our members and, hopefully, prospective members!

Our June and November meetings featured Dr. Parvez Dara as the FAA Safety Seminar instructor.  Thank you Dr. Dara!

Who can forget July's Vintage Aircraft Tour at Ocean County Airport?  The tour featured warbirds as well as 1930s and 40s passenger aircraft.

And a big Thank You to all who helped in our Summer Barbecues including Chef Extrodinaire Bob Palamara, dessert specialist Arlene Newman and the many members who made delicious treats!

Our weekly workshops continue to be a fun time where we are closing in on completing the Thatcher CX4 and the Sportsman.  Thanks to Bob and Arlene Newman for providing the workshop area, coffee and treats!
