General Information

Anyone with an interest in aviation is welcome to attend the next EAA Chapter 100 Winter Hangar Flying Event or Summer Fly-In. Hangar Flying Events are for: training, presentations, socializing and just, plain old fun. They are (generally) every second Friday of the month at 1900L. We try to rotate locations among the various member projects.  Fly-Ins are summer events usually held at Dodge Center (KTOB) starting about 0900 on the second Saturday of each month.   Pilots are encouraged to bring or fly their airplanes to the event.  Then, we'll just have fun.  No airplane, no problem.  There just might be an opportunity for a ride or some other fun.

Dates and times are often adjusted a few times each year to schedule around major events, such as the annual AirVenture convention in Oshkosh, WI.

EAA Chapter 100 conducts the Business Meeting about 10 days prior to the Hangar Flying Events. We conduct our business at these meetings and save the Hangar Flying Events for fun and education. All current members of EAA Chapter 100 are invited to attend and participate in Business meetings. Business meetings are usually held at the Bears Den in Byron
