Welcome

Our Chapter Mission

It is our mission to share the joys of flight and aviation related activities, and to help pass those joys on to future generations.

Young Eagles

Young Eagles is a national program through the Experimental Aviation Association that provides “fly days,” allowing any youth between the ages of 8 and 17 to receive a free flight in our members’ aircraft.

Twice each year, once in the spring and once in the fall, chapter members organize and support a "Young Eagles Day" at our local airport.

Aerospace Education Fund

The EAA Chapter 943 Aerospace Fund collaborates with the Nassau County School District by financing selected high school students that have achieved the milestones of solo flight and passing their private pilot written exam. The selected students will be committed to pursuing an aviation career.

Your generous gift to the EAA Chapter 943 Aerospace Education Fund illustrates your commitment to our mission of growing youth participation in aviation.

Our Location

EAA Chapter 943 is located on beautiful Amelia Island, Florida and we operate out of the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport (KFHB). Our Chapter hangar is Hanger #1 located in the first row of T-hangers.

Our Meetings

Chapter meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30 PM. Meetings are held in the upstairs conference room of the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport Terminal Building, home of Bent Wing Flight Services FBO, located at 680 Airport Road, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034

Membership in the national EAA is encouraged but not required, with the exception that national membership is required in order to qualify to fly Young Eagles. Chapter annual dues are $10 starting in January of each year.

Additional Activities

On the first Saturday after the first Wednesday of the month (the first Saturday after our monthly meeting), Chapter 943 hosts a no cost hot dog lunch for members, guests, and any individuals interested in supporting the chapter and local aviation interests. The lunch is held from 11:30 AM until 12:30 PM at our Chapter Hangar #1 located in the first row of T-hangers, just off taxiway A, facing south toward the open airfield.

In addition chapter members participate with other local volunteers for local Airport Support Activities throughout the year helping improve airport operations and safety, and to improve fellowship between Chapter members and the community at large.

Our Membership

Our members come from all walks of life, commercial pilots, aviation instructors, experimental aircraft builders, private and student pilots, and people with an interest in the community and aviation in general.

We encourage anyone with an interest in aviation to join the Chapter or volunteer to help with our programs. Together we can “slip the surly bonds of earth . . . and dance the skies on laughter-silvered wings.”
