Each Chapter has its own personality that is

through fly-ins, picnics, workshops, Young Eagle rallies and more. We are an Active Chapter with a hangar and
lots of exciting projects in the works. Contact us

Memorial Plaque. His story and achievements can be read on our
"Remembrance" page here on the web site.
Take a moment and bow your head in prayer for our friend.
