EAA Chapter 179 relies on membership dues, individual donations, and corporate sponsorships to fund our educational activities including our aviation scholarship program, the Land of Enchantment Fly-In (LOEFI), Young Eagles rallies, aircraft projects, and the Double Eagle Aviation Academy (DEAA).  In 2021, the 179 Board of Directors committed to a long-desired goal to secure a dedicated chapter facility at Double Eagle II Airport.

In 2022, we acquired a workshop hangar to support our aircraft build project. Our vision is to secure a larger aviation education center to base our activities, enabling us to expand our offerings in support of the aviation community.
