Welcome to EAA Chapter 1083 

Located at the Mid Carolina Regional Airport

{ Formally the Rowan County Airport } (KRUQ)


We are a non-profit group made up of people who have an interest in aviation. 

Aircraft ownership is not necessary to enjoy our group,  although we have in our

membership aircraft ranging from sleek cross-country general aviation machines

to experimentals, ultralights, even Powered Parachutes.

Our mission is to promote the sport and hobby of recreational aviation,

and encourage others to experience the thrill of flight. 

Remember EAA Chapter 1083 is family oriented, so bring the family for some good fun.                     

We'll see you there!


You don't have to be a member to attend.  You just need to have an interest in aviation!


What goes great with airplanes? 

Hamburgers, hot dogs and the best french fries in Rowan County of course!

Join us for our monthly cook out at the Rowan County Airport!

 Bring your family and friends! Fun for everyone!
