EAA Chapter 179 – Come Fly With Us!

The Land of Enchantment Fly-In (LOEFI 2021) was a great success. Thanks to all who came to see the airplanes, the many exhibits, and to enjoy the day at the airport. And thank you to the many members of Chapter 179 and friends who volunteered to make this event so special.

The Albuquerque Chapter 179 of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) was recognized by EAA as a 2019 Gold Chapter for our outstanding level of involvement and commitment.

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!

2020 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.
