Young eagles resumed with great success!

What a great day we had on June 18th.  Our first Young Eagles day in 3 years.  You could not tell we were new at it.  Actually, our chapter has been at it for 30 years.  In 1992 we started the program, just a few months after EAA announced the program.  Since then, except for the interuption by the C. Virus, we had only missed when the weather caused a cancellation.  Please consider joining our chapter and taking part in Young Eagles.  Pilots and other volunteers are always needed.

For the past 20 years our membership has sponsored the Young Eagles Program.  It is a collaborative effort with members of Chapter 1230 and several local members of the Tuskeegee Airmen, Lee A. Archer chapter.  All of them are also members of EAA 1230

Parents and Young Eagles wait for their flights and others to return from the adventure.  Young Eagles flies all youngsters 7-17.  NO CHARGE…did we mention that?  Chapter 1230 pilots have flown over 7,000 Young Eagles.

Volunteer meeting july 9th

Chapter 1230 will have a Young Eagles volunteer meeting on July 9th, 9:00am-11:00am   in the County bulding conference room, Nut Tree Airport.  Please plan to attend so as we can make Young Eagles a success. Volunteers are needed for registration many positions.  

The great thing about the Esperimental Aircraft Association is the mixture of people who come together to enjoy their shared passion of flight, engineering, and the challenge of building a machine that can fly.  Then, if you survive the many hours required to complete such a complex project, you can be a test pilot as well….

chapter mission

The mission of the EAA1230 Chapter is to celebrate the freedom of flight that is unique to our Country.  To be active in educating potential future pilots and introducing young people to the opportunities that aviation offers.  To pursue aircraft construction,  and be a resource for those members that are making the effort to construct an experimental aircraft.  To provide a source for aircraft and pilot safety, maintenance ideas and aviation health information.   To also be an organization that promotes interaction and fellowship with others that share our passion.

You need not be a pilot, a builder or an aircraft owner or renter to join our organization.  All you need to be a member of our Chapter is to enjoy aviation, education, and things that fly.  To join, a membership in the Experimental Aircraft Association is necessary.  Pilots who fly Young Eagles need to be a licensed and current.  Besides being an EAA member, your aircraft must have current insurance and be legally flight ready… Please contact us if you have questions about our Chapter or about this website
