As recreational pilots, aircraft builders, and aviation enthusiasts, we love to share our passion for aviation with the public, promote aviation safety and education, introduce youth to aviation, and serve the general aviation community.
Join Us! Whether you fly, build, restore or simply are enthusiastic about airplanes or aviation, you are welcome to participate. Join us for our next meeting or event, and consider becoming a chapter member!
Message from Emilio, Chapter President, “In these times of social distancing, we can participate in online meetings to keep in touch with our family, friends, fellow aviators and EAA 179 friends.”
History: The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) was founded in 1953 by a group of people interested in building their own airplanes. Today, EAA is a community of recreational pilots and builders dedicated to sharing our love of aviation. Experimental Aircraft Association, Chapter 179 is a 501c(3) tax exempt charitable organization chartered in Albuquerque N.M. on August 29, 1963 and incorporated in 1965.
