At the December Board of Directors meeting a new expense reimbursement policy was voted into place. As the chapter moves forward the board has acknowledged a need to have sound fiscal policies in place. This will help us to be able to apply for further grants from other organizations to grow our youth program.
Along with this policy it was decided to separate our scholarship monies from chapter general fund monies. This will provide for better accounting of scholarship funds available to the chapter to help young folks in their pursuit of aviation careers.
EAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 250 members, we offer a wide range of aviation-related activities on a regular basis. While the Pancake Breakfast and our monthly meetings are the norm, we also are heavily involved in youth education through EAA’s Young Eagles program and our Aviation Explorer group, regularly conduct fly-ins, and host historical aircraft such as EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast”, the Ford Tri-Motor and Ron Alexander's DC-3.
Our technical counselors are some of the best in the business, and willingly donate their time to homebuilders, as they progress through the various phases of constructing an aircraft. We have pilots with a wide variety of experience, from former airline and military pilots to general aviation pilots with a private certificate. “Hangar flying” is a fun part of the mix, and our facility is often used for aircraft annual inspections, meetings, special events, and training. We also have an extensive array of aviation tools for loan to members, and a library full of aviation information.
Come join us on the first Saturday of every month at the hangar to enjoy a $6 Pancake Breakfast, and to learn more about EAA 690.
