In light of recent announcements concerning the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, the leadership of our organization has reluctantly concluded that formal meetings within the EAA should be placed on hold. Admittedly, there are situations where a local meeting would present no danger of contagion whatsoever. Consideration is for our members as a part of the more at risk group of infection than the general population.
Any questions you might have about a particular situation may be addressed to us by sending an email to Ken Brown president@eaa430.org

Covid-19 Status:   The latest announcement from Clallam County Emergency Management CCEM (CLICK HERE) places our county in Phase II.  Until we get a “CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF” all EAA 430 activities are CANCELLED.  If we get an all clear for any of our activities you will be notified.

Flying Start Program

The Flying Start Program will not take place in 2021.

The upcoming EAA’ Flying Start program allows EAA chapters to welcome and encourage new aviation enthusiasts to the fun, freedom, and accessibility of personal aviation. The program consists of an EAA-prepared PowerPoint presentation and video that provide the attendees with information about learning to fly. EAA 430 will customized the PowerPoint presentation with information about our chapter and flight training resources with prices in this area which you will provide. The presentation concludes with a free 20-30 minute introduction EAA Eagle Flight for each attendee provided by EAA 430 pilots.

The goal of the Flying Start program is to provide interested adults a pathway to flight training and involvement with our local EAA chapter.
