Welcome to Chapter 245


EAA Chapter 245 follows all provincial rules regarding COVID-19.  Please follow all the mandatory, and common sense rules to protect yourself and others around you.  Our chapter does keep a supply of fresh surgical masks should you forget to bring your mask along.  Be safe.



As we enter 2024, we need to remind everyone that membership renewal time is here.

Please send your dues to Ken Potter, our treasurer, at treasurer@eaa245.org, and we will do the rest.

President's Message:


Well, as of this writing "official" spring is just around the corner (next week), but in our part of Ontario it looks like spring started a couple of weeks ago. I managed to get our Maule out of hibernation and flew it off of our grass strip a few days ago. This is the earliest spring flight ever for me as we normally still have a couple of feet (or half a metre for you young people) of snow around. It felt gooooooooood to get flying again after a few months off.

As you probably know, we sold the chapter's Zenith project to Rob Fleck and Graham Smith a while back. This has replenished the chapter's coffers and will allow us to do some much-needed renovations/repairs to the chapter hangar and lounge. One job that MUST be done is the replacement of the windows in the lounge, which will force a lot of drywall repair and replacement. While we have access to the wall internals, we will fix the Gordian Knot of electrical wiring that is there and, possibly, work around the panel in the hangar bay.  All of this to say that we (especially Chris H) could really use some help with this. Not only physical labour but also the acquisition of new/replacement windows and, if you have the knowledge/licence, help with fixing the electrics. We are years past due addressing these issues.

And a final note before signing off; we have a Young Eagles event coming up on 25 May. Andrew Henry is looking for pilot and ground crew volunteers for the event. Please think about helping out and contact him at Young.Eagles@eaa245.org

Now, get out there and go flying.



Membership Coordinator's Message:

As we enter 2024, need I remind those members who have not renewed their membership, to please do so.  The success of our chapter relies on the support from all of our members and not just the executive.  Please send your remittance to treasurer@eaa245.org and we will do the rest.  Please check out Membership for information regarding membership renewal or becoming a member.
