Welcome to the official website for Chapter 282 of the Experimental Aircraft Association. EAA Chapter 282 is a group of pilots, aircraft builders, and aviation enthusiasts dedicated to promoting general aviation. We are based in the always warm and sunny city of Clearwater, Florida.

At the EAA Chapter 282 hangar we build and restore air planes, share knowledge, skills, experiences and good times.

You are invited to visit, experience this yourself and join in.

You do not need to be a pilot, a mechanic or an engineer, but you do need to be warned. The Spirit of Aviation is contagious and you may find yourself obsessed.

Young persons are also introduced to aviation via the Young Eagles program. Click Young Eagles for our schedules, photos and more.
