What we offer

Our chapter provides a wide range of resources for our members including technical counselors, who help aircraft builders with technical and safety advice, and flight advisers who help pilots prepare for first flights of experimental aircraft.  One of our chapter’s finest assets is the varied skills and great cooperation of our members. Those with expertise in one area are glad to help other members, knowing that when they need help in another area there will be a member available with the necessary expertise.
