Our chapter is part of the worldwide network of EAA chapters. EAA embodies the spirit of aviation through the world's most engaged community of aviation enthusiasts. EAA's 170,000 plus members enjoy the fun and camaraderie of sharing their passion for flying, building and restoring recreational aircraft. To find out more about EAA and our programs and services, please visit our home page at EAA.org.
Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our chapter. We are a group of aviation enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who get together with like minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community and have a lot of fun doing so. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest.
EAA Chapter 179 was chartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico on August 29th, 1963. It was the first EAA Chapter in the State of New Mexico and has been in continuous operation to the present day.
The Chapter holds monthly meetings the third Tuesday of each month at the Copper Canyon Cafe, located at 5455 Gibson SE, Albuquerque NM. These meetings feature: presentations on many aspects of aviation, resource sharing by pilots and builders, and a friendly get-together for members and visitors. You have to eat dinner anyway so you might as well stop by and visit with us, we don't bite (much).
