The incredible landscapes of the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah come together at one point. That point can be seen on the Denver Sectional Aeronautical Chart and World Aeronautical Chart CG-19 and is known locally as the “4-Corners.”
In grateful recognition of our blessings, we named our EAA Chapter the “4-Corners Flyers.”
The 4 Corners Flyers, EAA Chapter 1451 was formed in the spring of 2007. We successfully blended a cooperative aviation community out of six seemingly separate aviation interest groups at Cortez, Colorado, Municipal Airport (CEZ).
Homebuilders, weight shift LAS pilots, production airplane pilots, powered chute pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and Cortez aviation history buffs (see the pull-down menu item, “Cortez Aviation History”) came together to share their mutual interest in aviation.
Based on our efforts the City of Cortez is officially involved in celebrating Cortez’s unique aviation history with plaques and displays in the Cortez Airline Terminal and honoring the people and the families of those involved.
We fully support the EAA parent organization in Oshkosh, WI in its effort to keep the general aviation airspace open, to keep an eye on government over-regulation, and to introduce the thrill of flight to the next generations through the Young Eagles Program.
We meet the second Saturday of every month at 10:00 AM at Boykin’s hanger at the south-end of the airport.
