Welcome to EAA 430!    


Serving the Clallam County Flying Community since 1973                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Greetings….

The location for our PAVE THE WAY TO THE FUTURE Project.

Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 430 is a group of aviation enthusiasts located in Clallam County, Washington and surrounding areas, about 50 miles northwest of Seattle, on the northern Olympic Peninsula.

We are dedicated to having fun with aircraft.




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.
As we approach the end of April for the gathering on the 25th, the leadership will be taking another look at further recommendations.
Any questions you might have about a particular situation may be addressed to us by sending an email to Ken Brown president@eaa430.org
April 28, 2020  Update:Based on the latest announcement from Washington Governor Jay Inslee  our state will be on a rolling OPEN FOR BUSINESS PLAN.  Until we get a “CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF” all EAA 430 activities in May are CANCELLED.  If we get an all clear for any of our activities we will revisit this decision.
We are pleased to announce that EAA Chapter 430     
has achieved the Gold Chapter Recognition level!  

This program was created to recognize chapters that have demonstrated outstanding commitment to general aviation. Developed in partnership with EAA’s Chapter Advisory Council, it’s based on 10 criteria that are consistently found in active and engaged chapters. Each is worth a point, and there are three levels of recognition: bronze (7 out of 10), silver (8 out of 10), and gold (at least 9 out of 10).
1) Attended a chapter leadership training session
2) Growing or steady membership
3) Offers IMC or VMC club programs
4) Participates in Young Eagles or Flying Start programs
5) Has an EAA-approved flight advisor or technical counselor
6) Participates in EAA’s annual chapter member survey
7) Reads EAA ChapterGram regularly
8) Requested EAA promotional materials or ChapterBlast email
9) Hosts at least two public events each year
10) Owns/leases a facility
The current score for our EAA chapter is 10 out of 10. Thank you to all of our members that helped us achieve this goal!
