Chapter 371

Portage Municipal Airport (C47), Portage, WI

Welcome to our Chapter

EAA Chapter 371 earned its Charter on December 10, 1970 with eight original members.  It grew quickly and has been going strong for over 44 years.

Our hangar is dedicated to Gordon "Red" Thomas who was instrumental in making Chapter 371 what it is today.

We have both flying and non-flying members with a variety of interests, talents, and aircraft.

We are dedicated to the Young Eagles program and know they are the future of aviation and of EAA. 

Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our chapter. We are 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.

For more information on our chapter, please contact our president (608)-617-7187 or our treasurer at (608)-697-9069
