EAA Chapter 992
With members flying from both Marshfield Municipal Airport (KMFI) and Taylor County Airport (KMDZ), Chapter 992 meets on the second Monday of each month, at 7:00p, alternately between Marshfield and Taylor County airports.
Chapter 992 has been serving the aviation community of Central Wisconsin since 1992. Building and flying aircraft, flying Young Eagles, serving pancakes and chili, and restoring and maintaining EAA's collection of classic aircraft are a few of the events that we enjoy every year. You're welcome to join us!
Yes, you can build your own airplane. You can build them from wood, aluminum, fabric, steel, fiberglass or other materials. There are hundreds of designs available or you can even design your own airplane! There are simple designs that look like a go-cart with wings and more complex designs that compete with $500,000 state of the art factory built airplanes. One of our primary missions is to support the people who build airplanes of any shape or size with advice from airplane building veterans, encouragement from fellow aviators, lending a hand where needed, lending a tool when needed, or even just having a place to show off your completed work. To see what our current members are building check out the Projects & Planes page.
Some of our members fly airplanes that were built as far back as the 1940’s. As you can imagine, these planes always need a little TLC to keep flying. Some of our members have purchased airplanes in terrible condition, pulled them completely apart and lovingly restored them to better-than-new condition. If you like getting your hands dirty and getting grease under your finger nails, restoring an airplane may be for you! Check out the Projects & Planes page to see some of the vintage and restored airplanes our members fly.
What’s the point in having an airplane if you can’t fly it? We try to schedule a couple of “fly outs” every year where we load our members into our airplanes and we fly to some location to have a little fun. Since our meetings alternate between Medford and Marshfield some members also fly back and forth between the meetings. We also fly as part the Young Eagles program and of course we fly sometimes just for fun.

Pancake Breakfast and Fly-In: Each year, we host our annual pancake breakfast as a way to raise money for our scholarship program, and to increase the visibility of Marshfield Municipal Airport in our community. We are proud of our area youths and our host airport! It is held every July, typically within a week or two before the start of EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI. Keep an eye on our event calendar for the date of the next pancake breakfast!
Ski Plane Fly-In and Chili Feed: Each year in February, Dave Le Voy whips up his world-famous chili recipe for all! We consume this fabulous concoction during our annual Ski Plane Fly-In and Chili Feed. The event is open to everyone, and goes on regardless of the weather. Now, it is a ski plane fly-in, of course, so snow and ski planes are both welcome and encouraged! Keep an eye on our event calendar for the date of the next ski plane fly-in and chili feed!
Here are some photos of our members and their families enjoying themselves with aviation-related activities over the years.
