EAA Chapter 651

Green Bay, WI

About Our Chapter - 

 Chapter 651 has about 50 members from Green Bay and the surrounding areas. Some of our members are pilots with ratings from student to Airline Transport Pilot. Others are aviation enthusiast or just enjoy the social activity.

 Chapter 651 is an active chapter with all kinds of opportunities to get involved. We were the first chapter to start "Aero Mart" at the EAA convention 7 years running. Chapter 651 has done mall shows to promote aviation and our chapter with static displays and educational materials. Other activities include fly-outs, pancake breakfasts, factory tours and fly-in's.

 As a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Educational Corporation our Chapter is committed to education by offering scholarships to aviation schools and sending kids to youth camps at the EAA grounds.The Chapter 651 Scholarship was named after our past President, Jim Jahnke, who passed away September 1995. He flew 352 Young Eagles.

 Young Eagles is a important event for our Chapter giving young people a chance to experience a ride in a small airplane and maybe become a future pilot or airplane mechanic. The pilots in our Chapter have flown around 4,204 children, as of August 2016, since the program inception.

 EAA Air Academy is a unique summer camp for young people that takes their interest in aviation to the next level. Participants spend a week at the purpose-built Air Academy Lodge in Oshkosh, completely immersed in the thrilling world of aviation.

 Top-notch aviation instructors help kids explore the world of flight through aviation studies, hands-on activities, flight simulation and many other exciting experiences. The highlight of the week is a flight in one of EAA's meticulously maintained aircraft!

 These camps provide the foundation for a lifelong love of aviation as well as the opportunity to create friendships with fellow aviation enthusiasts. For more information call 888-322-3229.
