Welcome to our Chapter
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.
Our chapter is part of the worldwide network of EAA chapters. EAA embodies the spirit of aviation through the world’s most engaged community of aviation enthusiasts. EAA’s 170,000 plus members enjoy the fun and camaraderie of sharing their passion for flying, building and restoring recreational aircraft.

EAA Chapter 461 is located at Clow International Airport (1C5) in Bolingbrook, Illinois
Our next meeting will be Thursday, June 7th, at 7:00 pm in the Illinois Aviation Museum hanger. The weekend of Cavalcade was outstanding. We will have an after action report, so to speak, on Cavalcade and the Ford Tri-Motor visit. AirVenture is just around the corner and Josh is handling camping reservations. Be sure to get your camping spot reserve. Also at this meeting, we will be having a BBQ. Please let our Grand PooBah, Wayne, know how many will be showing up, so we can get a good idea of how much food to cook.

The Zenith is now owned by a flying club, Access Aero. With many schools charging $150 an hour for a Cessna 172, the founding members of Access Aero wanted a good, reliable, inexpensive to operate airplane. Along came the Zenith 750. For more information about Access Aero, you can visit their website at: Access Aero and follow them on Facebook.
