Free Airplane Rides for Kids
Welcome to EAA Chapter 579 located in Aurora, Illinois. Our members are Pilots, Builders, and Aviation enthusiasts. We offer support and help on homebuilt aircraft projects,  provide contacts for flight instruction, host safety seminars, conduct technical seminars, offer adult introductory and Young Eagle rides - and much, much more. But mainly, we just like airplanes!  Monthly Chapter meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of the month, except for July, November and December, when they are held on the third Thursday because of AirVenture and the Holidays. 

Chapter 579 is a 501 c3 not-for-profit corporation dedicated to aviation education.  Our members also contribute their time and efforts to other worthwhile endeavors, such as: EAA workparty weekends, Oshkosh conventions volunteers, EAA B-17 tours, regional technical workshops, FAA safety workshops, fly-outs and picnics among others.

Chapter members who are also aircraft owners typically have informal “breakfast club” fly-outs on Sunday mornings in the summer to airports within an hour’s flying time of Aurora that have restaurants on the field. Empty seats are usually available for those members interested in riding along. 

If you need more information, or if you have any questions about our services, please feel free to call or e-mail us.  Better still, we would like to extend an invitation to you to attend our next meeting, meet our members, and see for yourself how much fun you can have.
