EAA Chapter 1218

Willow Springs, MO

Welcome to our chapter

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.

November 9th Flying Start Event

Our November Flying Start Event was a huge success!  There were 69 people attending throughout the afternoon.  Eight registered participants were flown, nine walk-ins flown, six Young eagles, and other rides given.  We had three instructors from Ozarka College, Melbourne, AR present also.  We really do appreciate the great participation by our chapter members.


Fly-In, Camp-Out 2021

Our chapter Fly-In and Camp-Out was held on June 11-13th. We had good weather and enjoyed a variety of airplanes, parasails, and drone flying.  Area musicians also entertained the crowd on Friday and Saturday nights after the meal. We enjoyed good food, flying (watching others fly), and aviation fellowship.
