WebMaster EAA Chapter 172


The Wrens Airport (65J) has a nice  3000' runway. The 120' x 700' tarmac has plenty of room for aircraft parking. It also has a 1000' x 100' grass strip. Stop by sometime (usually on the weekends) and see what is being built and flown there -- one Taylor craft is being rebuilt and several ultralights/light planes are there (two Titans and a Challenger I). There's also a Thorp T-18 and a completed Nieuport 11. Hanging from the ceiling is a Super U10 glider (no longer airworthy, just for show). In a small hangar next to the large one is a Hummelbird under construction. There are two restrooms, a nice air-conditioned lounge, a lot of friendly people and plenty of peanuts! You can look at the past Nieuport construction activity at the Wrens airport by clicking on Nieuport.  Also, you can find information about the upcoming Wrens Fall Fly-in (the 1st weekend of October) by clicking on Wrens Fall Fly-in

Some of the Members are interested in more than fixed-wing aircraft and are also gyroplane enthusiasts. An EAA 172 club member, Ross Wheeler, has an RAF 2000 GTX and our club Secretary, John Magnan, is also a gyroplane pilot and enthusiast and has a Bensen B/8M and is building a Nieuport 11 fixed-wing aircraft. We've included a couple of links for those of you who are intrigued with rotorcraft. A rotorcraft Website is PRA Chapter 13 Starbee Gyros,  and the Popular Rotorcraft Association. If you have any questions, please Email John Magnan at jcm2@earthlink.net
