Both the Pietenpol and RV-12 projects are moving forward at great pace. The chapter youth members are working on the fuselage under the guidance of the mentors and are building wing ribs for the full size version of the same plane..
The RV-12 wings are now under construction and the finishing kit will be ordered soon. We are seeking donations so we can complete this beautiful airplane and having something for our members to fly. The avionics and engine portions total approximately $40k. If you have ideas on how we can reach our goal, we would love for you to share them with us. In the meantime check out the photos of both projects on the website and on Facebook.

EAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 250 members, we offer a wide range of aviation-related activities on a regular basis. While the Pancake Breakfast and our monthly meetings are the norm, we also are heavily involved in youth education through EAA’s Young Eagles program and our Aviation Explorer group, regularly conduct fly-ins, and host historical aircraft such as EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” and the Ford Tri-Motor.
Our technical counselors are some of the best in the business, and willingly donate their time to homebuilders, as they progress through the various phases of constructing an aircraft. We have pilots with a wide variety of experience, from former airline and military pilots to general aviation pilots with a private certificate. “Hangar flying” is a fun part of the mix, and our facility is often used for aircraft annual inspections, meetings, special events, and training. We also have an extensive array of aviation tools for loan to members, and a library full of aviation information.
Come join us on the first Saturday of every month at the hangar to enjoy a $6 Pancake Breakfast, and to learn more about EAA 690.
