welcome to our 2019 version
After a very rocky 2018 year, our E.A.A. Chapter, at Nut Tree Airport, is on the way back. We intend to have a full year of activities including the popular YOUNG EAGLES FLIGHT DAYS.
WE ARE NO LONGER PRE-REGISTERING OUR FLIGHTS. WE ARE BACK TO FIRST COME/FIRST SERVED FLIGHT SCHEDULING. PLEASE PLAN ON SHOWING UP, WITH YOUR YOUNG EAGLE, EARLY. WE WILL CUT OFF REGISTRATION AT 9:30 A.M. WE WILL STRIVE TO FLY EVERY YOUNG PERSON WHO HAS BEEN REGISTERED.
The August 15 date coincides with the next publication date of the San Francisco sectional and other FAA charts, and update of all other FAA data bases. Other commercial online aviation websites may lag several days.
It is recommended that pilots with dual Coms monitor 123.05 starting on the August 15, or use a handheld radio if available. It is also advisable to monitor the new CTAF 122.85 leading up to August 15.
The airport will also be requesting assistance starting on August 15, by anyone that might have a handheld or other radio while in their hangar or on the airfield to listen to 123.05 and advise pilots as needed.
The Airport will send out another local email notice prior to August 15, as well as issue NOTAMS leading up to the activation of 122.85. Other airports within the region are also being notified. You are also welcome to start getting the word out, but make sure to note that the CTAF will not change until August 15.
young eagles flights
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
AUGUST 17, 2019
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
