EAA Chapter 196 is the Central Massachusetts chapter of the EAA. The chapter meets once a month at the Minute Man Air Field (6B6) in Stow, Massachusetts and holds other activities on a regular basis.

Young Eagles: The Young Eagles program offers free airplane rides to children between the ages of 8 and 17. Chapter 196 holds Young Eagle rallies each month usually on the second Saturday between 9 a.m. and noon (weather permitting).

In September, our 2018 Young Eagle program was featured in The Foxboro Reporter. Read the article here.
