EAA Calendar of Events




Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 157

Redding, CA

Chapter 157 of the EAA is based at Benton Field, O85, at the north end of the Sacramento Valley. Monthly dinner meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30PM at our quonset hut clubhouse at Pleasant and South Streets at the northwest corner of the airport.

Our 2nd yard sale of the year went pretty well. We brought in almost $300. Thanks to everyone who helped with setup, takedown and managing the crowds. Also, a big thank you to everyone who donated items. We'll have another yard sale next spring.


Due to unexpected delays, we've regrettably decided to cancel the planned Octoberfest Fly In and campout. We'll do it next year.



Regrettably, due to other commitments by some pilots, planes out of service for maintenance and other reasons, we've been forced to cancel Our Young Eagles Event Scheduled for Saturday, October 17th. With only a few pilots and planes available, we felt it would be unfair to turn away large numbers of young people. Our next Young Eagles event will be the 3rd Saturday in April.
