About EAA

The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) was founded in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, WI, who were interested in building their own airplanes. Since then it has grown into a thriving and diverse organization encompassing warbirds, vintage aircraft, aerobatic airplanes, ultralights, and helicopters with a membership of over 170,000 people and more than 900 local chapters.

Brochure about us

EAA Chapter 932 is made up of a collection of aviation enthusiasts of varying backgrounds; pilots and non-pilots, model airplane builders and flyers, active and retired airline pilots, airplane owners and renters, restorers and builders. One thing we all have in common is a joy of aviation and the strong desire to promote it in our community.

Chapter meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 10AM in the FBO at Galt Airport, Greenwood, IL.  Since our primary goal is to have fun, we plan field trips when the opportunity arises and at least once a quarter we host a community event or fly-in.

One of our passions is promoting aviation to young people. Through our participation in the national EAA Young Eagles program, our volunteer pilots offer the opportunity to go flying in an airplane to kids ages 8 to 17. These flights are offered free of charge.  The Youth Aviation Club is  for area high school students to explore their interests in aviation with like-minded teens.

See our Young Eagles and Youth Aviation Club pages for more information.
