Who Are We? We are Chapter 1445 of the Experimental Aircraft Association.
I know the name Experimental Aircraft Association sounds a little scary. It conjures up images of a room full of aeronautical engineers with their slide rules and drafting boards. Nothing could be further from the truth. The best description for us would be Aviation Enthusiasts. Do you love to watch movies about aviation? Have you ever stopped by an airport...just to watch? Do you find it nearly impossible to not look up when an airplane passes overhead. Well, you're probably one of us. Many of our members are pilots and many are not. A few own their own aircraft and some are building their own aircraft. Some just like getting together at 10:00am on the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Chandler, Arizona Airport terminal and talk about aviation. We usually have an interesting program about some aspect of aviation. Guests are always welcome so stop by and say hello. If you enjoy airplanes yourself, maybe you will consider joining the EAA and our chapter. Because of the summer heat, the proximity of the Airventure Fly-in and the fact that many of our members spend Summers in the North, We don't hold meetings in July and August. We look forward to seeing you!
Our chapter is part of the worldwide network of EAA chapters. EAA's 170,000 plus members enjoy the fun and camaraderie of sharing their passion for flying, building and restoring recreational aircraft. To find out more about EAA and our programs and services, please visit our home page at EAA.org.
