Thread: Find active chapters (and meeting information) in Atlanta?

  1. #1

    Find active chapters (and meeting information) in Atlanta?

    I live just south of Atlanta Georgia (I can sometimes hear planes landing at Hartsfield). And I am trying to get more involved with the EAA, and meet more pilots and builders. I have attended a couple of meetings of EAA 468, and they are a great group in Williamson, but it is a long drive that is made worse by my reluctance to wake up early on a Saturday morning.

    I would expect that there are other chapters closer, but when I search the nearest I can find is Newnan (I would like to drop in on a meeting soon).
    Are there any active chapters in Atlanta?

    Hello, have you tried searching for chapters near Atlanta on EAA's website? There are a couple active chapters in the Atlanta area with contact information. You can search for chapters here: https://www.eaa.org/eaa/eaa-chapters...an-eaa-chapter

    If you have any additional questions, I can reach out to our chapters office.

    Chapter 1415’s meeting info is out of date. They have reorganized and now meet up in Calhoun

    I live near the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, and Cartersville is over an hour from me, Calhoon is 40 minutes farther. Neither are realistic while I don't have a plane of my own. I emailed the address on file for 1025 to verify the meeting time, but I never heard anything back, and at nearly an hour away I don't want to make the drive unless I am sure it is happening. The next ones I want to check out are EAA 6 in Newnan and 1568 in Locust Grove, but I think both meetings are canceled in December for Christmas.
