EAA Chapter 818 – Burlington, Washington  KBVS


Chapter Meetings

Our September Chapter meeting is this Saturday the 11th at 10:00AM.  We are going to have it in the park across from the Airport Terminal in the same place we had the picnic last month.  The reason for the outdoor meeting is due to the COVID situation. The weather forecast is good but you will need to bring your own chair as you did last month.  In the remote chance that the weather turns bad, we will cancel the meeting for September.  We will try to have coffee and donuts as usual.

While at the airport on Saturday, be sure to visit one of the businesses for lunch or refreshment.  Skagit Landing, Chuckanut Brewing or Garden Path Fermentation.

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
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!
