Tool Loan Program

The following Chapter members have agreed to allow some of their own personal aircraft tools to be loaned out to fellow EAA members: 

1.      Tools can be loaned out for a period of two (2) weeks.  You may be able to extend the loan period with permission from the tool owner.

2.      Tools are to be returned in the same condition you borrowed them.  Normal wear and tear is expected.  Tools that are damaged or lost are expected to be repaired or replaced by the Chapter member that borrowed the tool.

3.      If you see a tool that you would like to borrow, contact the member listed below by email or phone.  If you need a tool that is not listed, check with other members at our Chapter meetings.  Many of our members have tools and are willing to loan their tools to other Chapter members. 

Remember, these are personal tools of the members listed below.  Please take care of the tools that you borrow. If you'd like to add your tools to this list, email Caleb with the information.
