The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is an organization of members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds, dedicated to preserving flying of any kind. Since its founding in 1953 by a group of individuals who were interested in building their own airplanes, the organization has expanded its mission to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters, and contemporary manufactured aircraft. The association now contains hundreds of local chapters all across the nation.
EAA Chapter 1073 is the local chapter of the EAA, based at the Truckee Tahoe Airport. We are a very active group of pilots, aircraft builders, and aviation enthusiasts. If you would like to attend one of our meetings or take part in the pancake breakfast – please visit our Events Page for detailed information.
Once again, our local chapter President, Tim LoDolce, chairman of the event, put together an even more outstanding event than he did for us in 2012 and 2013! The Air Show has a web site with many exciting details of this event – Truckee Tahoe AirShow & Family Festival. For information from the air show chairman and more on our local chapter’s involvement, use the link here.
Plans are underway for an even greater airshow in 2015 — stay tuned…
