EXPERIMENTAL AIRCRAFT ASSOCIATION (EAA) CHAPTER 1541 AND YOUNG EAGLES

Children and teens between the ages of 8-17 years old fly free!

The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is a nationwide community that celebrates grassroots sport aviation, from homebuilt to warbirds, classics, light sport, and ultralights…anything that flies just for the fun of it.

Chapter 1541 is EAA’s local chapter at the Lincoln Regional Airport.

Monthly activities include general meetings with exciting programs, pancake breakfasts, fly-outs to local aviation events, and special programs of interest to homebuilders, recreational flyers, aviation history buffs, local pilots, or anyone who looks to the skies with curiosity.

We have a monthly newsletter and an active website with current events and items of interest.

Many of our local members build or fly airplanes. However, you are not required to own an aircraft or be a pilot to be a member…just have the enthusiasm to join in and share our love of sport flying.

Over the past few years we have had several Young Eagles Rallies, hosted the EAA Ford Tri-motor from Oshkosh where we sold rides on the Tri-Motor (we set a national record for paid passengers), assisted with various Lincoln Airport events, participated in local fly outs for breakfast, lunch, or local airshows, provided scholarships for students for their Private Pilot ground school, and participated in many other activities. EAA Chapter 1541 is a very active EAA chapter.

We now offer two scholarships for students to attend the weeklong EAA Air Academy held in Oshkosh, WI. Please see our website for details.

Please review the schedule of events listed on our website, www.eaa1541.org. Feel free to contact any of the names listed on the website for additional information.
