What we're about
EAA1182 is the oldest and one of the most active Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) chapters in Hawaii. Many of our members have built or are building their own aircraft, and/or are pilots of production aircraft (including CFIs & ATPs), and many are student pilots, aviation veterans, mechanics, and aviation enthusiasts! We host aviation presentations/seminars at our monthly potluck at the Hilo International Airport (ITO) covering a wide array of topics. We host regular "Young Eagles" events that fly youth (ages 8-17) on free introductory flight experiences and help train youth toward their pilot's licenses with FREE ground school. EAA1182 is an educational 501(c)(3) public charity based in Hawaii.
