If you like flying, building airplanes, or just talking about them, Chapter 64 of the Experimental Aircraft Association is for you. Our members are flying and building a variety of aircraft. Our Technical Advisors are eager to share their skills and experience with you to make your project easier. Our library contains a myriad of resources including historical publications, how-to manuals, computer CDs, DVDs, and videos and our tool box contains many special tools that are available for loan to our members. Our members come from all walks of life and range in age from their teens to their '80s. Although named "The Eastside Chapter," our members live throughout southwest Illinois (i.e., Belleville, Millstadt, Columbia, Collinsville, Troy, New Athens, etc.) and St. Louis and South County. (We even have active members in Germany and Florida.) We work closely with the Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum in historic Hangar Two at St. Louis Downtown Airport (CPS) in Cahokia, IL. We occasionally take our meetings on the road to other airports to view nearby aircraft projects. Chapter dues are only $2 per month. Come out and see for yourself how rewarding local chapter membership can be.
Our home is at the base of the old control tower on the south side of St. Louis Downtown Airport. We hold our monthly meetings there on the first Tuesday of each month. We offer a meal at 6 p.m. and begin our meeting at 7.
