Welcome to EAA Chapter 582 Toledo, Ohio
We have been around since 1977 and our purpose is to "Foster interest, promote safety, and provide educational opportunities in matters related to aviation within our community."
In 2006 we realized our dream and built the facility at KTDZ. It features a modern learning library, a well equipped shop, and adequate hangar space for completing projects.
We have also developed a "Flight Plan," to help us stay focused on our purpose and, "balanced," so that each activity or project supports other aspects of the club. Click on the thumbnail to view a downloadable PDF.

Please welcome new members:
After last nights November Membership meeting, it was agreed that the 2015 elections will take place the first week of December.
Polling will be open from December 1, 2015 through December 7, 2015.
A link will be placed here on the homepage of the website that will take you directly to a totally anonymous ballot.
In order for you to cast a vote, you will need to "log-on" to access the link.
At last night's meeting, it was brought to the attention of the membership, by terms of our Chapter Charter with EAA National, all elected officials must first be a members of EAA National. Additionally, all those voting in chapter elections must also be members of EAA National....
To comply with this requirement, it was also agreed, a short statement of acknowledgment to this regulation will be posted in conjunction with the voting link.
Finally, for those members who have trouble with our website, but would still like to cast their votes, a Builder's Meeting has been organized (at the hangar) for Friday, December 4th to help these individuals. A computer will be made available (with an attendant on hand) to lend assistance to anyone having trouble.
Nominations will continue to open for the rest of this week, for any member who would like to accept a nomination.
This is your opportunity to become involved with our chapter leadership.

The Possibility of a Winter Ground School:
Would anyone be interested in organizing and instructing a Private Pilot / Light Sport ground school?
If the Chapter can find a ground school instructor, the thought may be to convene a class, one night a week over the course of the winter that would finish in the Spring, placing the student in position to take their written.
If you, or anyone else you know, may be interested in conducting such a class for beginning pilots, please contact me, Tom Park via the Membership tab above.
Welding Class Follow-Up
We received great response and participation to our last "Introduction to OXY Acetylene gas welding class. As a consequence, there has been interest by others when the class will be offered again.
If you are one of these people that would like to see this introductory class run a second time, please add a posting to the: OXY Acetylene Gas Welding Class forum.
When interest reaches critical mass... We will open registration. We are looking to have this class offered again sometime in the fall.
There is a difference between a "Forum" and a "Blog".
A Forum is a place where you can go and write a comment on a topic or give your opinion. You will find a number of them on our website, all of which are available from the "Forum" tab above. For the most part a Forum is considered more conversational than a Blog.
The format of a Forum is usually light and general banter about a given topic. Someone starts the conversation or forum by throwing out a comment about said topic. Others read the posting and comment back as to their feelings.
A Blog on the other hand, is usually considered more of a "statement" by the author of the Blog. Depending upon how the blog has been set up, will dictate where the reader will be able to comment, or not, as to what has been posted.
You can get a brief synopsis of all the recent Forum activity..
You can subscribe to a "Forum"?
Instead of getting an email every time something changes on the website.... you can limit your email, but still stay in touch with Chapter happenings by only subscribing to the Forums you choose.
Oh, you may not want to follow every forum on the 582 Website... so only subscribe to the ones that interest you. Let's just say you would like to follow the progress on the Chapter Flaire project.... you may even choose to make a comment about the last entry. Simply find the "Flaire Forum" on this page, click on it and magically you will be at the "Flaire Forum" In the upper right hand corner of the page you will see blue text saying, "subscribe", click on the text and you're done. You are in touch wilth all the latest happenings and commentary as updates get posted.
