Chapter 52

Chapter 52 Sacramento, CA

Welcome to our Chapter

 We are a non-profit volunteer organization that is dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of general aviation.

Chapter 52 holds it's monthly meeting at 7:00 pm on the last Tuesday of the month Location:  Returning to the Conf room at Sac Executive - our traditional location 

Guests are always welcome and encouraged to attend.  We have interesting guest speakers, informative presentations, share information and resources, and just simply have a good time with friends who love aviation.

Chapter 52 membership benefits are numerous as well.  Members can participate in all of our events, attend general meetings, take advantage of seminars, and fly in our Young Eagles program, just to name a few.  Members also receive our monthly newsletter "The Wingflap". 

The 50+ members of Chapter 52 are a diverse group of aviation enthusiasts from the Sacramento area and beyond.  Diverse in age, interests, projects, and occupations.  It is not necessary to be a pilot to belong to EAA or Chapter 52.   Our many non-pilot members are committed to promoting general aviation through participation in the many and varied activities the Chapter sponsors each year.

Chapter 52 members have completed or are currently building a variety of aircraft including Thorp, Lancair, Vans RV models, Rans, Bede, Kitfox, Glassair, and many more.  Other members who fly, but are not interested in building, own or rent production aircraft.

The Chapter hosts numerous fly-ins, fly-outs, pancake breakfasts, and picnics throughout the year.  We present educational programs for both novice and experienced flyers and participate in programs such as the new Eagles Program , designed to introduce the non-flying community to the value and joy of flight through a mentor pilot. 

Visitors and guests are always welcome at a Chapter 52 event.  What better way to see first-hand the fun we have, and the wonderful people involved in our chapter.  Chapter 52 events are designed for the entire family.  If you have children who are interested in flying, let us introduce them to aviation through our Young Eagles program.  If you fly, would like to learn to fly, or if you just have a love for aviation in general, please accept our invitation to attend our next monthly general meeting.  Meetings are held the last Tuesday of each month beginning at 7:30pm at the Sacramento Executive Airport, in the Executive Conference Room located inside the terminal. Please check out Events Calendar for more information.

Workshops = Elements of HomeBuilding


EAA Chapter 52 presents “Elements of Home-Building”

These 4 hour sessions provide a taste of the fundamentals of home-building skills and knowledge.

Think of them as SportAir Workshops Lite.

They start at 1300 on the chapter breakfast Sundays – so fly in or drive in have a pancake or two and join us for the workshop after. A light lunch will be available to purchase.

These sessions are not a fund raiser but a FUN raiser to showcase the very attainable skills to build you own aircraft.
