several important functions in the local community.
First, the organization brings people with an interest in aviation

congregate, meet new friends, and talk with others that share their
interest through monthly meetings and other events. The Farmville

Second, the chapter works to introduce the community to general
aviation flying (non-airline flying):
The chapter's largest contribution to promote general aviation to
the non-flying community is the annual fly-in where the community is
invited to Flanagan field for food, fun, and flying. This annual event
brings airplanes and their pilots from around the area into the
airfield along with some of the best home-cooking around. See the
fly-in page on our site
for more information on this year's fly-in.
Third, but not least, EAA chapter 960 participates in an
international program called the Young Eagles:
The goal of this world-wide program is to provide a demonstration
flight in an airplane to 1 million children from ages 8 to 17 by the
year 2003 - the dawn of aviationís second century and the 50th
anniversary of the EAA. The flights are provided free of charge to any
youth wishing to participate in the Young Eagles program. The pilots
of the EAA chapter 960 donate their time and airplanes to introduce
these children to flying.
