Located in Hayward, California, this Chapter was originally created as an EAA Antique/Classic chapter. In 1999 EAA changed the name of the Antique/Classic division to EAA Vintage Aircraft Association (VAA). Although this is a Vintage chapter, our members consist of pilots and non-pilots, singles, couples and families. Our pilots fly homebuilts, warbirds, light sport and production aircraft.
Our chapter is part of the worldwide network of Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and Vintage Aircraft Association (VAA) chapters. VAA brings together people from around the world who share an interest in the aircraft of yesterday. Since it was established in 1971, VAA has been working to keep aviation history alive.
EAA embodies the spirit of aviation through the world's most engaged community of aviation enthusiasts. EAA's 160,000 plus members enjoy the fun and camaraderie of sharing their passion for flying, building and restoring recreational aircraft.
