It’s Time to Renew!

As the year comes to a close, it’s time to renew your membership with Chapter 84. Our membership rate is just $20 per year. To renew your membership, you can drop off a check in the chapter hangar, or send your dues to the Treasurer via PayPal.

In the hangar, look for the cashbox in the tool cabinet. You will need your pre-assigned door code to get in. Make checks out to “EAA Chapter 84”, and ensure that your name is printed on the check, so we know who to credit.

To send your dues via PayPal, go to the PayPal website and login (create a new account if you don’t already have one), and send $20 to treasurer@eaa84.org. Please include your full name and contact information in the comments: either an email address, or a phone number.

Thank you for being a part of EAA Chapter 84!

COVID Cancels the Fly-Ins

At the moment, we’ve all been locked down for three months due to COVID-19, with good results for our health. However, it has essentially meant that the fly-in season of 2020 is entirely cancelled. EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI and the Arlington Fly-In in Arlington, WA, two tent-pole events in the summer flying calendar, are both cancelled. Every fly-in in between has been cancelled as well, as we focus on not allowing the pandemic to spread.

We are, of course, sad to see these major events shut down. However, we’re encouraged by everyone’s commitment to each other, and keeping each other healthy.

Unfortunately, this has meant that EAA Chapter 84’s events have also been cancelled: no Young Eagle events, no fly-ins, not even any in-person membership meetings for at least three months. We are particularly sad to lose our Red-Tailed Hawks event, where we run a Young Eagles event which specifically invites our black and brown friends to join us in the joy of aviation.

Thank you for doing your part to help keep everyone safe as the world muddles through this pandemic, and we’re so looking forward to seeing you in person again as soon as we safely can!
