Chapter 1117

Experimental Aircraft Association Greeley, CO

Welcome to EAA Chapter 1117

Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join us at the Greeley, CO airport. 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 1117 meets on Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. at the Greeley Airport terminal building conference room.  Most members start off with breakfast at the Barnstormer Restaurant in the terminal building but you'll need to get there early,  around 7:30 a.m. since that's a busy time for the restaurant.

If you're not on our email list, please check our Calendar to make see where the meeting will be held.   If you would like to be added to our email list for notification of upcoming meetings and events, or simply to get more information about our chapter, contact our president, Jim Zarlengo, at or 303-915-8891.
