The FPA Scholarship Award Program for 2019 is now accepting applications!
Welcome to the Fitchburg Pilots Association/EAA Chapter 1454 website. We're based at Fitchburg Municipal Airport (KFIT), Massachusetts. Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our Chapter. We're a group of aviation enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who get together with like-minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community and have a lot of fun doing so. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest.
Our regular Chapter meetings are on the second Tuesday evening of the month at our FPA Aviation Center hangar. Dinner is at 6PM, followed at 7PM by the Chapter meeting and the month's topic. On December 11th, we're going to have a hands-on demonstration of some of the more popular EFPs out there - from expensive to less expensive to free - for iOS (Apple) and Android (everyone else!) tablets/phones. Our member presenters will demo a quick plan flight from KFIT to KACK so you see how each program works up on the projector. Then we'll break off into groups so you can wander to the program you're interested in and ask questions. Please attend - member or wannabe. Certainly, we'll all learn something new!
Our Meetup website can be viewed by anyone interested in our activities. (Meetup/FPA membership is limited to current FPA/EAA 1454 members and their guests.) You're encouraged to visit anytime, get an idea of what we do and plan to attend our Chapter meetings. We also use Meetup to schedule many Chapter activities, like popup fly-outs (the flying kind, not the baseball kind). For our fly-outs, PICs need to know and approve all passengers prior to departure. Since we have over 100 members in our organization, your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.
Our Chapter is part of the worldwide network of EAA chapters. EAA embodies the spirit of aviation through the world's most engaged community of aviation enthusiasts. EAA's 170,000 plus members enjoy the fun and camaraderie of sharing their passion for flying, building and restoring recreational aircraft.
