Chapter 555

Las Cruces, NM

Welcome to EAA Chapter 555, the Triple Nickel!

Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our chapter. 

We are a group of aviation enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who get together with like minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community and have a lot of fun doing so.

Our mission is to introduce our next generation of youth in the Mesilla Valley to the world of aviation and all that's possible. 

From becoming aircraft techs maintaining a fleet of jets, to learning to fly, even serving our country in the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, or Navy's aviation programs.

We provide mentoring, guidance, education, hands-on experience and scholarships to our community.

Please come to our next gathering or event as our guest!
