A Passionate Aviation Community

EAA Chapter 932 is about people, bringing together individuals interested in learning more about aviation as well as sharing their own knowledge. Chapter members are involved in a variety of social and educational activities, including Young Eagles rallies, fly-ins, building seminars, and much more.

We are a community of aviation enthusiasts that promotes and supports the love of flying.

We serve the community by:

  • Inviting the public to experience flight
  • Promoting EAA’s mission encouraging the “Spirit of Aviation”

  • Nurturing interest in aviation in our local community
  • Supporting clear pathways to participation in our chapter
  • Inspiring new participants in aviation
  • Present & Host aviation safety seminars

Our Chapter Members

How does one describe an EAA member? That question does not have a definitive answer. EAA members represent every aspect of aviation and often have multiple interests. We fly them. We fix them. We even build them. EAA members are folks from all walks of life. Sure, we love airplanes, but it goes beyond that. It’s about passion, camaraderie, and a grassroots way of sharing our love of aviation with others. It’s the airplanes that bring us together. It’s the people who keep us coming back.

We fly them. We fix them. We even build them.
