Would just like to say how great it is to have been asked to join this site! Though I don't currently have any real aircraft projects of my own, I hope to have one someday.
I have been a newsletter editor to EAA Chapter #225 of Rochester, NH nearly continuously since 1985. I am also the young eagle coordinator since the inception of that program and I am the current secretary as well. I truly enjoy being an EAA member, and the aviation that it brings me. Our chapter has had building projects since 1983 beginning with a rebuild of a set of J-3 wings, then onto a complete restoration of a 1947 Aeronca 7AC Champ with a few mods that had found itself crashed into a field some years earlier, and for the past few years a 3/4 scale LMA Champ Ultralight.
EAA Chapter 225 usually has about 45 members annually. We just recently acquired one of those small corner spaces at the end of a T-Hangar complex after trying to get onto the local airfield for the past ten years. Our new clubhouse is nearly finished. Soon we will be back finishing up the metal construction phase our ultralight project with hopes of applying the covering within the next 10-12 months.
Some of the members projects that have been built, rebuilt/restored, or are currently being worked on include: a Christen Eagle, a 2+2 Adventurer Seaplane, an all wood Hirondelle, an N3 Pup ultralight, a 3/4 scale Air Camper ultralight, 2-Exec Helicopters, and a Seawind 3000, a couple Piper J-3s & 1-J-5, a Howard DGA-8, several Waco's including one D model, a Stinson 108-2, a Navion, a couple of Luscombe 8's, 3-Aeronca 7AC's, a Cessna 140, Cessna 170, 2-Swift's, a N3N, a Sikorsky S-39, a Spezio Tu-Holer, a Falco 1.8, a Tri-Gear Europa, a Pazmany, and several ultralights of various shapes and sizes including a few Flightstars.
I will be putting this site into our next newsletter and have hopes that some of the members make use of it. I hope to be visiting again soon, and thanks again for this fine site!!

Welcome aboard Parkpointer, it's great to have you here! This site is growing at a pretty steady rate and before too long I think it’s going to become a truly useful resource so stay tuned :D

Sounds like you've got yourself mixed up with a great group of people over at EAA 225. For a group of 45, it seems to be pretty active. Thanks a bunch for passing this site on to them.

If you have any questions at all about how to use this site, or if you have a suggestion on how it can be made better, let me know. You can post it to the forums or email me directly. Thanks for registering and I look forward to seeing you around.


Ps Don’t forget to post the first flight pictures of your new clubhouse when you get them. The champ too ;) .
