Chapter Major Achievement Awards – Your Nominations Sought

March 2016 - EAA recognizes chapter members for their personal commitment and contributions to EAA, chapters, and their aviation community.

Through the chapter major achievement awards, EAA members share qualities including a sense of volunteerism, accomplishment, creativity, professional achievement, and dedication to their chapters.

Nominate those chapter members who have gone the extra mile and beyond throughout the year for the betterment of the chapter, EAA, and the GA community.

Selected award recipients will be honored at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016.

Major Achievement Award - Strong and healthy EAA chapters are the backbone of the organization. Those honored have demonstrated their passion and dedication for their chapters, EAA, and the recreational aviation community.
