We’re an active bunch, and there’s always something on the calendar. Whether it’s our monthly gathering, a Young Eagles event or our weekly coffee and donuts get together, we always welcome new faces.

For 2024, we are switching up our monthly gathering format to experiment with some new ideas. Take a look at the calendar below.

Monthly gatherings

We get together regularly on the second Thursday of each month starting at 6:30 p.m. These events are usually at our chapter office. If the event is a speaker or something similar that we can share on Zoom, you can join virtually.

Gatherings usually include time to catch up with each other, then a short presentation and Q&A with a featured speaker. For 2024, we are switching up our monthly gathering format to experiment with other types of events, too. Sign up for our email list for updates.

The program usually goes like this:
5:30 IMC/VMC Club (optional)
6:30 Gathering begins, pizza and pop
7:00 Presentation or program begins

We look forward to seeing you at our chapter office, or on Zoom.

Join via Zoom
Sharpen your skills


Our chapter offers an IMC/VMC Club for members interested in improving their flying in both instrument and visual conditions, with the goal of promoting proficiency and safety and fostering a sense of community.

Instead of a lecture or presentation format, our monthly programs present actual scenarios followed by group discussions. We try and do one IMC and one VMC scenario each month.

IMC/VMC clubs take place just before the monthly gathering, starting at 5:30 p.m.

All experience and skill levels are welcome to join in! Come to the office or join us on Zoom.
Start your weekend off right

Coffee and donuts

If hangar flying is your favorite flying and you’re an early weekend riser, come hang out at the chapter office every Saturday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. (roughly).

It’s an informal gathering of aviation enthusiasts, chatting about anything and everything to do with flying (and a lot of other topics, too). And, if it's a good day for flying, we might even plan a Saturday adventure.

Young Eagles Events

Our Young Eagles get together for monthly Saturday afternoon events, which includes opportunities to fly. Learn more on our Youth page.
