A rainbow for the beginning of our new EAA building and camp ground

We are currently working with the Airport Authority to create an EAA club house and public air camping facility which will include hookups, showers, toilets and shelter facilities for the flying public. As of January 1, 2017 we have a finished interior in the building & a complete bathroom with showers.
