About Us



Chapter 663 received its charter on March 13, 1980.  Located in Livermore, California, the Chapter is known as a "Builders Chapter" that is, with emphasis on the construction of homebuilt aircraft.  As seen on our "Chapter Aircraft" page, many nationally recognized aircraft have been crafted by Chapter 663 members, with even more winning awards at the local level.  Today, our membership numbers over 90 people.

Technical Counselors

EAA Technical Counselors are experienced airplane builders who visit other EAA members building an aircraft. The goal of the Technical Counselor Program is to help EAA members present a “zero defect” aircraft at its final inspection by the FAA.  Chapter 663's Technical Counselors have been involved in the construction of over 40 homebuilts and include a FAA licensed mechanic/inspector.
