Welcome to EAA Chapter 582
We have been around since 1977 and our purpose is to foster interest, promote safety, and provide educational opportunities in matters related to aviation within our community.
In 2006 we realized our dream and built the facility at KTDZ. It features a modern learning library, a well equipped shop, and adequate hangar space for completing projects. Click below to view a Youtube video about it.
We have also developed a "Flight Plan," to help us stay focused on our purpose and balanced. This ensures that each activity or project supports other aspects of the club. Click on the thumbnail below to view a downloadable PDF.

Welding Class Follow-Up
We received great response and participation to our last "Introduction to OXY Acetylene gas welding class. As a consequence, there has been interest by others when the class will be offered again.
If you are one of these people that would like to see this introductory class run a second time, please add a posting to the: OXY Acetylene Gas Welding Class forum.
When interest reaches critical mass... We will open registration. We are looking to have this class offered again sometime in the fall.

There is a difference between a "Forum" and a "Blog".
A Forum is a place where you can go and write a comment on a topic or give your opinion. You will find a number of them on our website, all of which are available from the "Forum" tab above. For the most part a Forum is considered more conversational than a Blog.
The format of a Forum is usually light and general banter about a given topic. Someone starts the conversation or forum by throwing out a comment about said topic. Others read the posting and comment back as to their feelings.
A Blog on the other hand, is usually considered more of a "statement" by the author of the Blog. Depending upon how the blog has been set up, will dictate where the reader will be able to comment, or not, as to what has been posted.
You can get a brief synopsis of all the recent Forum activity..
You can subscribe to a "Forum"?
Instead of getting an email every time something changes on the website.... you can limit your email, but still stay in touch with Chapter happenings by only subscribing to the Forums you choose.
