    Oroville Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 1112 - Who, What, Where, Why, When -

    Who we are - We generally have a membership of over 50 enthusiasts. There are no membership requirements other than an interest in homebuilt aviation and/or aviation in general and a willingness to work to advance the Chapter goals. Local Chapter dues are $20/yr. Members are also encouraged to join the national EAA organization, currently (2016) $40/yr.  Membership in the Oroville Foundation of  Flight starts at $20/yr donation.

    What we are - We are dedicated to the advancement of homebuilt aircraft, the education of our members in building and flying techniques and the conduct of chapter group activities such as  presentation of an annual EAA Chapter 1112 Fly-In generally in the month of May (see the Activities Calendar).

    Where we are - Most of our activities occur at the Oroville Municipal Airport (KOVE) which is located about 4 mi. west of the city of Oroville, California on State Route 162. Oroville is located at the base of the eastern foothills of the Sacramento Valley about 75 mi. north of the California capital city of Sacramento.

    Why - To have some group fun in aviation related activities and make some real accomplishments that may have lasting value.

    When - The Chapter currently (as of 2015) meets at Table Mtn. Aviation, 225 Chuck Yeager Way, Oroville Municipal Airport. 
    The General Membership Meeting is held on the 3rd Wed. of the month, each month, except December.
