A few of us pilots, who are EAA members, got together several years ago and decided to form a local chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association in the Martinsburg, West Virginia area. We were successful and have been certified, incorporated, etc. as EAA Chapter 1071.Our current membership stands at 42 and is growing. Over a dozen of our members have built or rebuilt at least one airplane....several have been involved in numerous projects. The pilots among us are of seemingly every type....student, private, sport, ultralight, commercial, ATP...corporate, airline, military, flight instructor. We have a helicopter pilot and CFI, a Basic Med Physician, a seaplane rated pilot, certified mechanics, enthusiasts and more.
We hope our ranks continue to grow, bringing together an even more diverse group of aviators, builders and aviation enthusiasts willing to share their experience and skills.
Meetings are regularly held on the last Wednesday of every month unless otherwise scheduled. Notifications of meetings will be made by e-mail to the members and on this website. The meetings will be held in the chapter hangar at the Eastern West Virginia Regional Airport (KMRB). Secondary location is the Pilot's Lounge in the Main Terminal at the airport . Meetings start at 1900 hrs (07:00 PM) and usually last around two hours.
