EAA Chapter 1556 is located in Gainesville, Texas.
We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting General Aviation within the local community through various events and activities.
Our chapter is focused on providing children (aka: Young Eagles) ages 8-17 years old a free flight experience. During these Young Eagle events, the children will participate in ground school activities and take a short flight in a general aviation aircraft. By doing this we hope to spur the desire to fly within children, in the hope that they may pursue Aviation as either a hobby or a successful career path.
Other events and activities we may host throughout the year:
Young Eagle Flight Days
Young Eagle Ground Schools
Monthly Safety Meetings
This Chapter is open to ALL individuals, Pilots, Non Pilots, EAA Members or Non EAA Members.
