On Saturday, May 12th, EAA Chapter 43 is holding its annual picnic. This year, Chapter 43 would like to invite any and all aircraft owners and aviation enthusiasts at Erie Municipal to join our festivities. All EAA Chapter 43 members, local unaffiliated EAA members, and all Erie based aviation enthusiasts are welcome to participate in a hangar open house that morning through lunch. We would love for all of you to open your hangars from 9:00 - 11:30am that morning so that attendees can walk about the airport and see airplanes and other special attractions hiding in those hangars of yours.
At 11:30 all are welcome to mosey over to Myles and Nila Lee's hangar for our pot luck cookout and scholarship presentations. We’ll be adding links in this space to an open hangar map, general directions, and parking suggestions by late April.
To assist us in food planning and open house attractions, please be kind enough to fill out the brief questionnaire/reservation here. All guests for the cookout are requested to bring a side dish or dessert (we will be providing hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and drinks).
We are very much looking forward to meeting new faces and visiting with old friends.
We are an enthusiastic group of airplane builders, flyers, and folks just plain crazy about airplanes.
We have many types of aircraft, both home built and factory built, in our chapter. We have ultralights, classics, warbirds and antique aircraft owned by members.
We also have a number of people who do not have an airplane and may never have one, but they love airplanes and fit right in.
Our chapter, as you can tell by its low number, dates back to 1957. We are the oldest chapter in Colorado and yet still have a charter member, still active and flying, 60 years later.
Our meetings are varied and informative. They cover all aspects of aviation from how to cover a fabric cover airplane, how to rivet and even how to fabricate an “engine turned” instrument panel. We hold some meetings at members homes to look at their project and ask questions. Some meetings are tours of local aircraft suppliers and shops. We have presenters who talk on aircraft safety, how to paint your aircraft, aircraft history and many other varied subjects.
We publish a monthly newsletter, also available on this website and by E-mail, as well as a yearly roster. We E-mail current info to those who have e-mail.
Come Join Us!! It only costs $25.00 per year and we feel you will get your moneys worth.
