This is the website for Chapter 266 of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) in Montreal, Quebec, an organization devoted to the interests of recreational aviators and aircraft homebuilders.

Our chapter was founded in 1963 and has about 75 members, giving us an excellent base of experience and knowledge.

Join Us

Our meetings are held the last Thursday of each month from September straight through May. You do not need to own or be building your own aircraft. All that is required is an interest in all things aviation. Check our "Meetings" section for information on getting to our meetings.

EAA Chapter Meetings

Chapter meetings are held at 7:30pm on the last Thursday of each month, in room 204 of the Penfield Building of John Abbot College, in Ste. Anne de Bellevue. We do not meet in July or August and in December we have a dinner get-together. Given there is a wealth of technical knowledge within our Chapter, we will answer questions of a technical nature related to homebuilt construction, so submit your technical question(s) at the next meeting.

You can get a variety of maps from the John Abbott web site. The map of the campus layout shows the Penfield Building where we regularly meet.

Newsletters

Chapter 266 publishes a newsletter the last week of every month. Our new Newsletter Editor is Richard Guevara. He is always looking for newsworthy items for inclusion in our newsletter.

We rely on input from our Chapter members to provide ideas, articles, project phots and progress, etc. to create an interesting and useful publication. If you have an article or material to submit, you can email it to Richard at itsgottafly@eaa266.org.

Tools & Test Equipment

(EAA Chapter 266 Members Only)

Our members have all sorts of useful and specialized tools, and have offered them to our members, either as a loan or they will help you with your project using these tools. The Chapter has also purchased a number of tools because we believe it would be a good way to save money for our members in their building and maintenance projects. These tools may be borrowed by paid-up members for a nominal fee; the same as our library fee, with a $5.00 deposit, $3.00 of which will be reimbursed upon the return of the tools – IN GOOD CONDITION. Broken tools will have to be replaced by the borrower! Michel Moreau maintains these tools and can be reserved by calling Michel at 514-694-2129 or by email.

Note 1: Rental fees are $2 except for those marked with (*) that are $5
Note 2: Tools kept by Michel Moreau belong to the Chapter, while the others are individually owned and rental terms must be negotiated with the owner
