Chapter Activities

Chapter 101 Activities

There's a lot you can participate in with Chapter 101. You don't have to own a airplane, be a pilot, or build a airplane. If you enjoy aviation and want to be around others that enjoy the same, then get involved with Chapter 101.

Monthly Meetings

Each month 101 members get together at Schaumburg airport to review what's going on the chapter. After getting everyone up to speed, the program features a new aviation related subject. You'll learn anything from building skills to survival skills to aviation history.

After the meeting enjoy coffee and treats. Guests are always welcome, so click Here to find out about our next meeting.

Young Eagles Flights

Here's your chance to introduce the wonderful world of flight to a new generation. Young people age 8 - 17 will receive free airplane rides donated by Chapter 101 pilots. After the flight, every Young Eagle receives a certificate and is entered into the 'World's Largest Log Book' maintained at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Click Here to find out about upcoming Young Eagles rallies.

Builder's Nights

Builder's Nights are held once a month and afford the opportunity to view members airplanes during the construction process, learn building techniques and gather expert information pertaining to building, restoring and maintaining airplanes.

Social Events

Several times a year member families get together to enjoy each other's company. Always with an aviation theme we'll gather for 101 Social Events.

* Annual Chapter Banquet - Held in March, it's a fun-filled evening capped off with entertainment provided by our own members.
* Family Night - Held in place of the June meeting program, enjoy a potluck supper as well as a chance to visit with your fellow 101ers and take home some nice door prizes.
* Annual Family Picnic - Our annual picnic is held in August and features great food, games and prizes, airplane rides and fun for everyone.
* Annual Chapter Christmas Party - Celebrate the holidays with Chapter 101 members. Good food, entertainment, prizes and conversation. Remember, Santa's a Pilot too.

Chapter Chicks

The women of Chapter 101 meet each month to craft decorations for all our chapter events and have developed a line of aviation-themed decorative objects, which they sell at various events. Proceeds from sales fund the Chapter 101 Scholarship Program. AirVenture Oshkosh - Convention & Air Show

Chapter members support the EAA Fly-in Convention (AirVenture) held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. By volunteering in the 'Work Party' members help setup for the show and during the show some members participate by volunteering support for various areas and tasks.

Chapter 101 members are eligible to stay in the bunkhouse or 101 campgrounds during the 'Work Party'. For the Show, there's no better spot than the 101 campgrounds, which are located about as close as you can get to the front gate.

On Saturday evening during the show, you won't want to miss the 101 Oshkosh Brat-Spectacular. Great food, music, prizes and lots of talk about airplanes.

If you're looking for adventure, Fly-Aways are the ticket. Hook up with members and experience flying day trips to interesting places - aviation museums, unusual restaurants, etc.
