EAA Chapter 414 Monthly Meetings

Chapter meetings are generally held at the Warbird Heritage Foundation (3000 Corporate Drive, Waukegan, IL), located on the west side of Waukegan Airport (click here for directions). Meetings are often on the second Thursday of the month, but this can vary so check the calendar.

Young Eagles

We've been having bad luck so far with the weather!  Our first two rallies had to be scrubbed due to poor visibility but our Aug 11 rally was a big success.

Our scheduled rally on September 9 at Stick & Rudder, Waukegan National Airport, was cancelled due to forecasted high winds. We plan on having a make-up rally in October, stay tuned. As soon as registration is open you can sign up here.  

You can keep informed on our rally schedule with our Young Eagles web page and our event Calendar.

B17 "Aluminum Overcast" Visit Cancelled

EAA 414 is very sorry to report that the scheduled visit of the B17 "Aluminum Overcast" did not happen.  Due to unforeseen mechanical difficulties the airplane remained grounded at Oshkosh airport over the weekend. We understand this cancellation is a major disappointment to many people who planned to come out. EAA 414 hopes to arrange for the B17 visit in the near future.
