We, the EAA UL1 Microlights, strive to keep the original intent of Part 103 alive and well within our Chapter. We also do our best to preserve the origins of ultralight flight in our area by keeping original designs flying safely. We do our best to keep our membership involved in the continuing education, advancement and overall spirit of light aviation. We work to present new ideas and ways in which to keep our membership informed and involved in the latest news and technology available. We are, and continue to be, a family oriented group of aviation enthusiasts. Our intent is to include all family members in our monthly Chapter meetings and all annually scheduled events. It is also our mission to introduce and educate the general public about ultralights and light aviation whenever and where ever possible.

As we close out the 2016 flying season the Microlite Flyers are preparing the newly elected Board of Directors for their leadership roles in 2017. We will have a newly elected President that brings with him a new and fresh look at how we, as an Ultralight-based EAA Chapter, will carry on our tradition as the very FIRST ultralight Chapter to be sanctioned by EAA. Please join me in welcoming Jim Pfarr as our UL1 President for 2017! I look forward to working with Jim as the UL1 VP and will continue to support our Chapter and its goals in any way I can to achieve our mission. Please watch for Chapter status updates through the early months of 2017. We will pin down briefing dates and share those with our membership as soon as possible.
UL1 is looking for help with our newsletter editing and membership. We need volunteers to step in and help us manage these appointed positions as soon as possible. If you are ambitious and motivated to help make our EAA Chapter a great place to learn and grow everything Ultralight, please contact any one of our officers and VOLUNTEER! We have a wealth knowledge and archival info that can help you get up to speed quickly. The job pays extremely well and the accolades are abundant as well. Pitch in! We hope to hear from you. Thanks!
