What is the EAA?
We are a community of aviation enthusiasts that promotes and supports the love of aviation.
In 1953 Paul Poberezny formed the Experimental Aircraft Association with the idea of getting together with friends interested in building their own airplanes. Today, the EAA has grown to over 200,000 members with nearly 1,000 chapters worldwide, and includes almost every aspect of aviation and aeronautics. Through the years, the organization has remained true to the founder’s ideal of bringing together like-minded people who have an interest in aviation.
Our Mission is to Encourage the Spirit of Aviation
Our chapter and volunteer members serve the community by:
• Inviting the public to experience flying with Young Eagle flights
• Nurturing aviation interests in our community by hosting special events
• Supporting pathways to participation in the aviation community
• Offering an annual flight training scholarship
• Presenting & hosting free aviation educational seminars
EAA Chapter 932 and Galt Airport
Galt Airport in Wonder Lake, Illinois is one of 20 or so, non-towered, privately owned, public-use airports remaining in this country. Under the stewardship of JB Aviation, the Illinois Division of Aeronautics voted this airport the Private Airport of the Year in 2014. It is regarded by the pilot community as one of the friendliest airports around. EAA Chapter 932 was established at Galt Airport in 1989 and is made up of people from all walks of life who share a “grassroots” love of airplanes and flight. The thriving spirit of Chapter 932 is represented in the broad array of aviation enthusiasts who make 10C their home-base. Come by, sit on a bench at the airport to watch the planes, talk to pilots and meet some young, and some young-at-heart students. You may even get to enjoy seeing a vintage biplane flying overhead or experience the thrill of watching the local Aerostars aerobatic team practice their maneuvers!
We invite you to come out and enjoy our free annual Barn Stormers Day event
on Father’s Day weekend. It can make for memorable moments for young, aspiring aviators
or for anyone who looks to the sky whenever an airplane passes overhead!
