The Coronavirus pandemic has sure changed how we live our lives. Our meetings are on hold until further notice (except online) but hopefully you can still get out and fly, if only solo. There are lots of EAA webinars to view from the comfort of your home so be sure to go to the Calendar and shop for a few you might be interested in.
Starting with the January meeting, our online Zoom meetings will be held at the same monthly time and date . The Board meeting is scheduled for the First Wednesday of every Month at 1900hrs (7PM). The General Membership meeting will be held on the Second Wednesday of every month at 1900hrs (7PM). You will receive an email, with a link for the January meeting that you must keep. The link will be used for all the rest of the meetings the rest of the year. You can also use the link on the Chapter Calendar or the newsletter.

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
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
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.
