We are all about getting folks interested in aviation and helping them get into the air. We started as a small group of pilots in Los Alamos, NM, back in 1982, who were interested in building their own homebuilt aircraft. Today we now have over 35 members in Santa Fe, Taos, and Espanola as well as in other states. Over the past forty years, Chapter members have built more than two dozen different types of homebuilt aircraft ranging from fabric covered biplanes to sleek aluminum and composite cross country aircraft.
Education has been and continues to be an important part of Chapter 691. We have two EAA Technical Counselors and an EAA Flight Advisor that are available to help homebuilders with the process of building and test flying an an experimental amateur built aircraft. Their services are free and include helping the homebuilder to document the construction to aid in getting the aircraft airworthiness certificate.
We regularly schedule presentations on a variety of aviation related topics for our members, and we have recently started a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Program to get kids interested aviation and help them develop the skills they will need in the future. We teach classes to help homebuilders develop the skills they will need for building aircraft. We also sponsor activities to give kids (Young Eagles) and adults (Eagles) free rides in an airplane to experience the joy and excitement of flying.
All are welcome at the Green Chile chapter. Please feel free to contact us, or just show up. Even-numbered months we meet at Signature Flight Support at the Santa Fe Airport (KSAF). Odd months are in the terminal building at Los Alamos Airport (KLAM). We meet on the third Saturday of each month:
