Welcome to the new and greatly improved Chapter 838 Website!

As many of you know, your Chapter Board voted last year to move all of our administrative functions to one platform, where everything is interconnected. In the past, we have used one software for financial functions, one for publications, one for membership and so on. We now have all of these functions, and more on the same platform. That should make it easier for everyone to communicate with each other as well as to have information about all Chapter events and activities. 

While change can be difficult to accept, we hope that you will become accustomed to this new look and to these new processes. Publications, such as PropWash and Chapter renewals may look different, but the same people are behind the curtain.

We all have a passion for aviation, or else we wouldn't be here. By making these changes, we will hopefully save time and effort in our administrative work that will allow us more time and energy to do what we really want to do - Aviate. So sit back, relax and we will take everyone through this change piece by piece. 

Remember, this is YOUR Chapter and YOUR website and YOUR newsletter. All content contributions are welcome.

Annual Chapter Banquet and Awards

 Our annual EAA Chapter 838 Banquet and Awards will be held this year in place of our October Chapter meeting, on October 20, 2022. Drinks, social time and hors d'oeuvres begin at 6:00 pm with dinner at 7:00. The festivities will be held at our Chapter building, in our hangar. "Dressy casual" is the order of the day - giving each one of us a chance to clean up and show off! The cost is $35/per person, and the Chapter Foundation is picking up the balance. Please register here so that your dinner choice is noted. If you have any questions, please contact Steve Myers or Ken Sack.

Young Eagles Provides Opportunities for Youth

Our Young Eagles Rallies, held the second Saturday of each month, are an attempt to interest the next generation in the joys off aviation. Our Aviation Explorers teach some of the science behind what makes an airplane fly, there is a brief presentation on careers in aviation/aerospace and the kids get to try our simulator. But the big draw is that they receive a ride with one of our pilots in a small plane. The goal is to ignite a spark which will burn brightly and convince the next generation that general aviation is for them, whether as a career or a hobby. 

Our rallies are held on the second Saturday of each month March - December. For additional information, either check out the Program website at www.youngeagles.org or contact us at [email protected].
