WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT:

Our group of aviation enthusiasts, made up of pilots, mechanics, CFI’s,
retired veterans, and interested persons meets once a month at the Skagit Regional Airport to
discuss mutual interests, share current aircraft projects, safety information, and to become enlightened
by a featured speaker with an adventure to share.

We also host “Spot Landing” contests, barbecues, and participate in other local fly-ins, such
as in Anacortes, Arlington, and at Mears Air-Field located in Concrete. Our Chapter
participates at the Arlington Air Show by sponsoring the “Fly-Mart” booth
during the course of this event. Owning an aircraft is not a prerequisite; just
an interest in aviation is all that is required, and hopefully, a desire to become
involved with a great Chapter.

One of our most anticipated events is flying children & teens from the ages
of 8-17 years of age, free, through our Young Eagles Program, sponsored
through the EAA Organization in Oshkosh, WI. Pilots volunteer their time and
the expense of aircraft fuel to ensure that any child can experience the thrill of
flying.

This event requires just as many “ground-crew” volunteers as pilots. On the
average, we fly 60 children every year in the late summer time during this one
day event.

We work closely with the the Skagit Airport Support Association (SASA), the Heritage
Flight Museum, the Port of Skagit and  other area aviation related outfits – to help
build a healthy, vibrant, innovative, and safe community of aviators.

Hope to hear from you, or better yet, see you at our next meeting!
