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

From the Chapter 157 archives, here's a brief history of the first 60 years of Benton Field (Airpark). It was written in the 1980's by an unknown author, so we can't attest to the accuracy. It's an interesting read. Click here.

Although cold and cloudy, our Young Eagles event Saturday, March 24th went very well. Four pilots took 49 young people flying. Thanks to all the volunteers who made this possible.

The next Young Eagles day will be in Corning on Saturday, May 19th. 

The Mt. Shasta Chapter of 99's did a presentation at a STEM conference on March 17th. Here's a report from Lerose Lane
