EAA Chapter 1342, comprised entirely of UND students, is dedicated to preserving the future of aviation and sharing the passion for flight with everyone in the Greater Grand Forks community.
In addition to fundraising throughout the year for the Fly-In, EAA Chapter 1342 also organizes a “Hog-Roast” BBQ, a visit to Winnipeg, and other events such as camping trips, paintball games, and holiday parties, all of which allow students and people from the community to share their common passion for aviation, to develop friendships, and to learn more about aviation. We invite you to join us for good times and unforgettable adventures!
The Experimental Aircraft Association was founded in 1953 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by a small group of individuals interested in not only flying, but in building their own airplanes. Now over 180,000 members strong, EAA has since expanded its mission to encompass WWII-era fighter planes, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters, antiques, and everything in-between. Through activities ranging from a 10,000 aircraft, 500,000 attendee, week-long “AirVenture” in Oshkosh, to pilot workshops and youth programs, EAA seeks to make aviation more accessible, more rewarding, and more enjoyable to all who share an interest in aviation - not just pilots.
