Welcome to the Charlotte EAA Chapter 309 Web Site. Our chapter extends a warm welcome to anyone who is interested in aviation. We are dedicated to furthering the idea of sport aviation through our support of the Young Eagles Program, Flying Start, and the teaching of building techniques used in the construction of experimental aircraft.

Our activities include monthly dinner meetings, fly-ins, and periodic outings to members locations as well as Young Eagles Rallies at local airports. Chapter 309 has over 90 members consisting of pilots and non-pilots.

Many of our pilots build and fly homebuilts, restore production aircraft, antiques, warbirds, amphibians, and ultralights.

Our chapter has a hangar at the Gastonia Airport for events and projects as well as aircraft storage. We also have several EAA Technical Counselors and Flight Advisors to help you with your homebuilt project. Our non-pilots just love airplanes and airplane noise!!!

Come out to one of our gatherings and join in on the fun. You'll be glad you did and we look forward to meeting you.
