EAA Chapter's 1083 History
The Rowan Area EAA Chapter 1083 was formed in 1993 and has continued
the tradition to foster and encourage participation in Aviation Related Programs. With the hard work of our dedicated membership
we have purchased a hangar at the Rowan County Airport that has been named the “EAAgles Nest“. We use this area
as a meeting place/club house and a place to participate in our programs.
Who Can Join?
We would like to
introduce you to EAA Chapter 1083. We are a non-profit group made up of people who have an interest in aviation. Aircraft
ownership is not necessary to enjoy our group, although we have in our membership aircraft ranging from sleek cross-country
general aviation machines to experimentals, ultralights, even Powered Parachutes. Our mission is to promote the sport
and hobby of recreational aviation, and encourage others to experience the thrill of flight.
Remember EAA Chapter 1083 is always family oriented, so bring the family for some good fun.
Where do we meet and what do we
do at these events?
Monthly Meetings are scheduled for the 2nd Tuesday of the month at Rowan County Airport, Hangar 18. The meal begins at
6:00 pm with the meeting following at 7:00. A $5.00 donation for the meal is requested. After our dinner we will have either
an educational program, a guest speaker or seminar or a business meeting. Our quarterly Business meetings in January,
April, July, and October, and the remaining months will be our program months.
the year we have special fly-outs to other area airports to support their general aviaiton flight operations. We usually depart
RUQ at 10:00 am, eat lunch and return mid-afternoon. Bring your plane and fly with us or if you don’t have a plane,
there are usually empty seats just begging for a passenger. Please check the calendar and webpage for details of future events.
On the first Saturday of each month we hold our First Saturday Lunch, usually at the EAAgles Nest at
Rowan County Airport (RUQ). Lunch is served from 11:00 A.M. until everyone goes home. The public is
always invited to join us for a cookout style meal and a lively course of Hangar Flying.
