EAA Chapter 104 conducts various community outreach programs throughout the year to better foster our mission of fostering, promoting and engaging in aviation education.
One of these outreach programs is our aviation program conducted in cooperation with the Porter County Library System and the Porter County Regional Airport. This program is coordinated by EAA Chapter 104 member Ed Hanson.
The EAA Chapter 104 library aviation activities have made the science and wonders of aviation substantially more accessible to our community. Our library patrons were able to tour behind the scenes at the airport, enjoy aviation-themed storytimes surrounded by real airplanes and pilots, and experience a sampling of the education pilots receive in ground school. I can’t overstate how generous EAA Chapter 104 and the Porter County Airport have been with their time and talents- and how much everyone has enjoyed these programs.Amanda Fack, Youth Services Coordinator, Porter County Public Library System
