Chapter 565

Punta Gorda, FL

Welcome to Chapter 565

Welcome to EAA Chapter 565, located on Punta Gorda Airport (KPGD) in beautiful Southwest Florida.

We are a group of aviation enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who get together with like-minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community and have a lot of fun doing so. Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our chapter. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest.

Take a Quick Look!

We have a few pages and sites for you to visit that may not be related to the EAA, but are definitely worth a visit.




Do not be alarmed at missing pages or content. The website is going through some cosmetic changes to make it more aesthetic and organized. ALL of the content will eventually find it's way back on the website. If you cannot find it, it might be under a different page. All changes will be made note of and sent out when they're permanent.
