Welcome !

The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is an international organization
 of aviation enthusiasts based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Since its inception it has
grown internationally with over 160,000 members and about 1,000 chapters worldwide

Chapter #1220 of the Experimental Aircraft Association is Headquartered at 5NC3 
Gilliam-McConnell Airfield in Carthage serving the Sandhills area of North Carolina.

We provide an active community resource for local airplane enthusiasts,
airplane builders, and pilots.  We also reach out to the community by raising awareness
of aviation, most notably by our Young Eagles program where kids learn about airplanes
and might even start a lifetime interest that leads to a lucrative aviation career.

If you're interested in planes and flying, please drop by for a meeting at 9:00 AM on  the
 third Saturday of every month.  Our meetings are located in our
EAA 1220 Clubhouse on the airport side of the runway


. Take a Left on the first street North of the Pik-n-Pig entrance. Go to your next Left. (dirt drive). Take a Right at its end. Our clubhouse has a wood shade porch and EAA 1220 sign.

You don't need to be  a licensed pilot, own a plane, or be in the process of building a plane to join, but after hanging around us there's a good chance you'll build a plane, buy a plane,
 or get your pilot's license.  If you're interested in aviation, we're interested in you.
