EAA Chapter 91
Lee's Summit Airport, MO
LXT
 Welcome to EAA Chapter 91 website


We are located at (KLXT) Lee's Summit, Mo. Chapter 91 of the Experimental Aircraft Association, the Greater Kansas City Chapter, was chartered in 1960. Currently there are about 100 members.  Many chapter members have built or are in the process of building all types of experimental aircraft.  Most likely we have someone in our chapter who knows something about almost any question a prospective home builder might have. Come and visit us even if you don't build or fly. We all just enjoy aircraft.  Our regular Chapter 91 meetings take place the third Monday of each month with the exception of February.  Meetings usually host a speaker on an aviation related topic and may or not be technical in nature.  More "hands-on" programs are in the planning.

 
   Next Chapter Meeting: Monday, Oct 20, 2014
   Time: 7:00PM to 9:00PM
   Location: Blue Hangar at Lee's Summit Airport, Lee's Summit, MO
   Program notes: 
 
The passing of EAA founder Paul Poberezny
 
By now, you are probably aware of the recent passing of EAA founder Paul Poberezny but if not, we wanted to be sure you knew.  He was 91 years old.  Both the aviation press and the national press have noted his passing which speaks well for aviation in general and specifically, sport aviation.

Paul was born in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas in 1921 and later spent World War II in the military.  After the war he flew with the Wisconsin Air National Guard where he retired as a Lt. Colonel. 

To many, Paul was known as the father of sport aviation, a title well earned and respected.  His love for aviation and aviators never waned, and he will be remembered not only for the incredible impact he had on people and the industry, but also for what a fine gentleman he was.

The members of Chapter 91 join the rest of the grieving world in offering our condolences to his family.  He truly did leave the world a better place thanks to his many impressive contributions.

 How To Join EAA Chapter 91


To Join EAA Chapter 91

Have a sincere interest in aviation: whether you are a pilot or not, whether you own a plane or not, whether you are building or plan to build a plane or not -- you are welcome!

Come to any chapter meeting or function. Look up any one of the officers for an application; or, give a call to the secretary to get an application sent to you. Return your application and check to the Secretary. Currently dues are $24 per year.

The application requests your EAA number and its date of expiration. This is important to EAA as they carry our chapter liability insurance and want to know all of our members quality under their umbrella policy.

Mission Statement of the Experimental Aircraft Association

The EAA is dedicated to serving all of aviation by fostering and encouraging individual participation, high standards and access to the world of flight in an environment that promotes freedom, safety, family and personal fulfilment.

Organization

EAA Chapter 91 of the Experimental Aircraft Association, the Greater Kansas City Chapter, was chartered in 1960.  Currently there are about 100-110 members each year.  Many chapter members have built or are in the process of building all types of private aircraft.  There is someone who knows something about any question a homebuilder might have.  Membership is on a calendar year basis with renewal each January.  Currently dues are $24 per year.

Activities

Regular Chapter 91 meetings take place the third Monday of each month with the exception of February.  Meetings usually host a speaker on an aviation related topic and may or not be technical in nature.  More "hands-on" programs are in the planning.

During February the traditional "Sweetheart Banquet" is held when members may bring a spouse, sweetheart, good friend, or come solo.  The enjoyable social evening typically includes a nice dinner and program suitable to entertain pilots or their guest who may not enjoy discussions dealing with strictly technical aspects of aviation.

Other activities include an annual fly-in (usually June), several pancake breakfasts usually including Young Eagle rallies, and hosting other aviation activities/groups such as the EAA B-17,Aluminum Overcast  or the Lee's Summit Public Works Expo.  Chapter 91 has traditionally been very active in the Aviation Expo held at Downtown Kansas City Airport annually.

History

In its early days, beginning in 1960, Chapter 91 met at a bank in Downtown Kansas City.  Meetings moved to different locations including several years at Bennington Chapel.  When meetings moved to the basement of Lee's Summit Airport in 1991, the Chapter had found a home.

A dream began to develop in a few of the members - to have our own facility.  Soon money-making efforts started with a target amount needed to get started.  Many members made pledges and made financial donations.  There were raffles and other fund raisers.  Then in the spring of 1998 a ground breaking took place and we worked weekends and some weekdays and slowly watched our dream become a reality.  As you look around, you'll see why we are proud of it and treated it kindly.

In May, 2000, 40 years after the chapter was chartered, the EAA Chapter 91 hangar was dedicated.  The hangar is home to several homebuilt aircraft as well as a meeting room area.  The second hangar was completed in 2005 and the third in 2007.  Chapter 91 now houses about 20 aircraft, mostly homebuilt.
