Heading Level 1
Our good friend and committed member to our EAA Chapter as well as the Lee Archer Chapter of the Tuskeege Airmen has passed. Howard was as passionate about the Young Eagles Program as anyone could be. He almost never missed an event, was present with pointed and helpful input at Board meetings, and made everyone comfortable with his mild and kind disposition. Although Howard was plagued by ill health his last months, he continued to show that endless spirit, attending our events and meetings to the end. He was truely a hero in his actions toward us all. We miss you Howard, God Bless you!

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.
COME EARLY TO REGISTER YOUR YOUNG EAGLE
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….
NEXT YOUNG EAGLES FLIGHT DAY
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
