Chapter 29

Champaign/Urbana, IL

Welcome to Chapter 29 where our passion for aviation soars!

Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our chapter.  We are a group of aviation enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who get together with like minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community and have a lot of fun doing so.  Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest.

We meet on the first Thursday of the month. Typically in years past this has been in the Q-3 classroom at Willard Airport.  This year most of our meetings will be off-site (e.g.) hosted by a member to show a project-in-progress.  Please check the calendar for the most recent information.

January Meeting

The January meeting will be on the 10th, at 7:00 PM. We will meet in the Bryan Room at the Institute of Aviation, at Willard Airport.

Member or Not... Join us at any of our Meetings.  We would LOVE to have you!

Start planning to attend chapter meetings on the first Thursday of each month except for June and September.  For details about our meetings visit the meetings page.  We look forward to seeing you.
