Chapter Achievement Awards

Chapter Awards

EAA recognizes chapter members for their personal commitment and contributions to EAA, chapters, and their fellow members.

Strong and healthy EAA chapters are the backbone of the organization. Those honored have demonstrated their passion and dedication for their chapter, EAA, and the recreational aviation community.

Major Achievement Award

Winners are selected for their EAA and chapter dedication, service to the aviation community, and their personal achievement.
