Chapter 17

Experimental Aircraft Association

Knoxville, Tennessee

CHAPTER 17 TODAY

We are a group of aviation enthusiasts from East Tennessee, and are affiliated with the Experimental Aircraft Association, based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Founded more than 60 years ago, Chapter 17 has been serving the homebuilding, kit building and recreational aviation interests of the East Tennessee community. The chapter also has an active Young Eagles activity with the primary mission of fostering the same love of flying in the youth of our community.
