On September 10, 1977, the EAA Chapter 585 was formed. Since then, we have been serving
the General Aviation community of West Michigan. Our base of operation is located at the beautiful Watervliet, MI (40C)
airport. A small, 2 grass runway airport, Watervliet helps keep the tradition of what aviation was built from.
And with camping allowed on the airport property, it makes it the perfect over night stop to pitch the tent and
sleep under the stars with your plane.
It is not just the airport that makes being part of 585 great, it is the people and the friends you will make that have something in common with you, a love of aviation.
So come and join us at one of our annual drive / fly-ins that are hosted during the summer or stop in at one of our monthly meetings held the second Wednesday of each
month starting at 7:00 P.M. Everyone is welcome!
