EAA Chapter 1121

Greenfield, IN

Welcome to EAA Chapter 1121!


Please join us for our monthly EAA Chapter 1121 dinner meetings, always the 3rd Thursday of the month 6:30 - 8:30 pm. We are a growing chapter and welcome everyone to our meetings; members, guests, friends of the chapter and anyone interested in aviation. It is not necessary to be a pilot, a homebuilder or aircraft owner to belong to the Experimental Aircraft Association. An interest in aviation in any form is all that's required. Please come and see what we're all about! 

Check the Events Calendar for monthly details. 

Big News! EAA Chapter 1121 has been awarded a $10,000 EAA Ray Aviation Scholarship!

 The Ray Aviation Scholarship Fund is a scholarship program that is supported by the Ray Foundation, managed by EAA, and administered through the EAA Chapter network. Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA will provide up to $10,000 to deserving youths for their flight training expenses, totaling $1,000,000 in scholarships annually.

 This is a huge accomplishment for our chapter. The funds will provide a private pilot certificate for one well deserving high school student.  Formal announcement on our scholar pending approval by EAA. 


Our EAA Chapter 1121 welcomed Girl Scouts from Brownsburg, IN for a Young Eagles event Sunday, October 8. Thank you to Young Eagles coordination Dennis Hutchinson for organizing this fun event for the girls, their families and pilots. We only had one teary eyed 11 year old, Ava, who wasn't sure she wanted to fly. Her mom and grandpa were there pushing her to go while Dennis and Judy (her pilot) were assuring her she did not have to fly. After a little taxi exercise with Judy, she announced she wanted to fly. Her choices were Geist Lake or the Greenfield Pumpkin Patch. She choose the Pumpkin Patch and ended up having a great time!


Interested in joining EAA Chapter 1121? In a nutshell, we are a group of aviation enthusiasts, pilots and builders who've come together to celebrate all things aviation. We're a very social Chapter and believe that every individual plays an important role, whether participating as an aircraft builder, pilot, spouse or someone who just loves aircraft and aviation. We invite you to our next EAA Chapter 1121 meeting. Please come, share a meal with us and get to know us. We look forward to meeting you!
