eaa chapter 65 golden horseshoe
Welcome to EAA Chapter 65’s website, your hub for all things aviation in the GTA and GHA of Ontario! As a passionate community of aviation enthusiasts, we are dedicated to sharing the spirit of flight and fostering a deep appreciation for the wonders of the skies.
Our chapter is part of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), an international organization that encourages and supports aviation in all its forms. Whether you’re a seasoned pilot, a curious aviation enthusiast, or simply someone who dreams of taking to the skies, we invite you to explore our website, engage in our activities, and join us in spreading the joy and excitement of aviation throughout the Golden Horseshoe community and beyond.
The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 65 – Golden Horseshoe was founded in 1959. Over a half-century later, Chapter 65 is an active club with 75+ members and over 20 member aircraft that is still growing! Our Chapter activity participates in ‘Buddy Flights,’ often called the ‘$100 Hamburger’. Members flying aircraft are encouraged to take non-flying members along. No empty seats!
The EAA organization, located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, allows you to share your interest with thousands of other members in a variety of aviation, educational, and social activities. EAA Chapter 65 has many activities with the support of EAA, such as:
- Aircraft building/restoration
- Monthly membership meetings/guest speakers
- EAA Young Eagles Flights
- Monthly newsletters
- And much more!
