Hangar News:

EAA Air Academy

One of the main objectives of EAA Chapter 582 is to educate and introduce aviation to young adults.  We do this with your membership support and our Young Eagles Program.


By various activities throughout the year, the Chapter is able to send teenagers to an aviation based, science camp offered by the EAA Air Academy in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.


The week long sessions are divided into 4 different age groups and maturity levels.  The camps are intended for students that have expressed an interest in aviation and would like to learn more. 


If you are a Chapter 582 member and know of a teenager you feel might benefit from such an experience.  I would like to hear from you.


If you are interested in becoming a co-sponsor with the Chapter in sending a worthy candidate to camp, I would like to hear from you too.


You can learn more about this program, if you visit the EAA, Young Eagles Air Academy website at:    




This is a wonderful program the Chapter works hard to provide to young students.  Even if you personally do not know of a candidate for aviation camp but would like to become involved in our Air Academy selection and nomination process, please drop me an email or give me a call.  This is just another way of getting involved with the Chapter, while helping to provide a lasting memory for a teen.

6) Did you know?

You can subscribe to a "Forum"? 


That's right, the website will notify you every time someone makes a new entry on a forum that you like to follow.  Let's pretend you would like to know every time someone lists a new item on the "Peddler Forum"....or makes a new entry on the "News and Chapter Business" forum.   If you subscribe to a forum you will receive an email each time new information is added.


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. 


Oh, you may not want to follow every forum on the 582 Website...  so only subscribe to the ones that interest you.  Let's just say you would like to follow the progress on the Chapter Flaire project.... you may even choose to make a comment about the last entry.  Simply find the "Flaire Forum" on this page, click on it and magically you will be at the "Flaire Forum"   In the upper right hand corner of the page you will see blue text saying, "subscribe", click on the text and you're done.  You are in touch wilth all the latest happenings and commentary as updates get posted.


P.S. Don't be afraid..... You can un-subscribe just as easily!

5) Did you know?

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.   



4) Did you know?

Member Lonnie Prince has already sold a radio off our new "Peddler's Forum".  Simply click on the "Forum" tab above and follow the prompts to create a listing.  You can even include a picture with your listing....  follow the step by step instructions and you're done.  It's easy..

And the best part is.......  it's free for members!  

Not only will chapter members be able to view your listing but anyone doing a search of the web will find it too.  As a matter of fact, Lonnie sold his radio to someone outside the chapter in just this manner.  It’s fun and it's easy.  Check it out!


3) Did you know?

 Every Member now has a Photo Album of their own!  That's right, as many pictures as you want, any time you want.  Create up to 5 folder of your own.  Pictures of your airplane or pictures of the airplane you're building.  Maybe you would like to share photos from your trip to Alaska.... or the Bahamas. The posibilities are endless!

Simply click on the "Members"tab above, click on "Edit my Member profile" and follow the edit prompts to your Member Profile page.  Click on "Member Photo Album" and create!  Upload your photos and share your experience with whom ever you choose!  

2) Did you know?

You can now contact and send an email directly from this website to another member with the click of your mouse!  From the "Members Directory" tab above, click on the name of the member you choose to contact and bingo, you're done! 

1) Did you know?

Effective 01/01/2014 your Chapter memberships now runs for a period of 12 consecutive months from the date you join!  This is another new change in the way we are doing business.  Gone are the days of the "pro-rate" membership and the accounting nightmare that accompanied mid term applications.  New memberships and renewals are now handled seamlessly... and online! 

However, for those of you who still prefer to send a "good ole fashion" check, well... we still accept them too.  Simply click on the membership link above and complete the application.

When you've finished, you'll have the option to send in your payment in via the U.S. Postal Service!  Your online application will be submitted electronically and coupled with your check when it arrives.

582 to Host Soaring Scout's Day Camp

Hi, I am Katey David, daughter of the world-famous Bill David.

Several months ago I became the first Student Member of EAA, Chapter 582 after my dad soloed me in a Pietenpol Air Camper.

As a Community Partner with the Girl Scouts, I would like to share my new found passion of aviation with others.

On Saturday May 17th I will be hosting a 4 hour day camp for Girl Scouts.

The title of the event is Soaring Scouts and will take place at the EAA Hangar. The theme of the camp will be Females in Aviation and the different careers it offers to young women.

I plan to start the day with the several female speakers who will share their personal connections to aviation. After that, there will be a quick question and answer period, followed by a small lunch for the ladies.

The afternoon session will include a close up look and explanation of the inside of an airplane and some aviation-related crafts, like the assembly of a balsa glider. I also want the girls to watch an airplane take off and land, go for a small tour, and get the chance to look at the runways. I'm hoping someone can help me with the flight simulator too, so the girls will be able to see what that looks like.

The camp will be no longer than 4 hours, for girl scouts between the ages of 8 - 12.

If this sounds like something you might be able to help me with and have a couple of hours you could spare on a Saturday, please give me a call.

You can contact me at 
(419) 494-9103 or drop me an email:


Thank you.

April's Banner Position!

Oh sure she needs a little paint... but that's Dr. Gary Swann's Glasair II at the top of this page.   

Although there's still a little more work to do...  Gary's Glasair II is featured because, last week she took to the skies for the first time and completed the first of two successful flights!   Being the latest new home built to grace the chapter, we award the top spot to Dr. Swan.  We believe this is what the EAA is all about.

Now it's back to the paint shop for some final detail and appointments but it won't be long before we see Gary and his new ship on the front and center!

After 20 years, Dr Swann is in his final stages of completing a dream.

Congratulation Dr Swan on the birth of your new Glasair.  We know you're no stranger to "deliveries" but we bet this will be one of your more memorable.

Attention Golfers!
