Congratulations! You have arrived at one of the largest and most active Experimental Aircraft Association chapters in the southeastern USA. We're also #2 in total Young Eagles flights!
EAA1114 offers something for every aviation interest in central North Carolina: homebuilding, vintage, warbirds, ultralights, fly-ins, fly-outs, workshops, aviation history and good old hangar flying.
*New* The Ray Foundation of Naples, Florida, is supplying $1 million for a youth flight training scholarship program that will work through EAA chapters. Read more →
*New* Weather was great for our "project" visits and poker run event on Saturday Sept 29. Thanks to the folks who showed us their shops and how their airplanes are coming along, and thanks for the folks who organized, provided food/drink and cooked lunch! You can see some photos and a video of Hari's engine run on his Bearcat here.
♦ We had a great YE event Saturday the 22nd at Harnett Regional Jetport. Thanks to the pilots, volunteers, and enthusiastic kids that made it happen!
*New* Last call!! Without volunteers will will not be able to participate in Piedmont Pacemaker DC-3 restoration, we've been asked to restore the pilot seats or the instrument panel. If you can volunteer for this rare opportunity, contact Dave Kerr. See the details here. If you missed the drive/fly-out to NC Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC to see the DC-3 restoration, you missed a fun trip. You can see some photos here.
♦ EAA National has launched Aviore! New Stan Lee-inspired superhero to take EAA Young Eagles into its next successful 25 years. Meet Aviore
♦ Have you dreamed of learning to fly but were never able to make it happen? We're looking into adopting the EAA Flying Start program to help you make this dream come true. We will connect you with an instructor and supportive team, and shepherd you through the entire process. If that sounds like something of interest, drop us a note and let us know!
♦ If you missed the "homecoming" picnic, it was quite an event in spite of the rain. We collected photos from a number of folks here. Just click through the folders to see the photos.
♦ Visit our Cafe Press site and get a new coffee mug or T-shirt!
