About Us

We are a group of people who share the love of flying and a love of airplanes – ultralights, light sport planes and PPG’s in particular. Technically, we exist as EAA Chapter UL 114. Many of us hangar our own ultralight or light sport airplanes and fly them out of Nichols field or other local airports in the region.  We have a CFI who provides instruction in light sport aircraft and we have an A&P mechanic available to help members maintain their aircraft engines and airframes.  Our first priority is safety and we are committed to protecting the environment at the field and anywhere we fly.  We sponsor ongoing projects to teach interested members in the art of experimental aircraft design and construction.

We welcome anyone who shares this passion to join us in the learning and the fun. We have monthly meetings at 10:00AM the first Saturday of every month in our clubhouse at Nichols field (see the Calendar page) and invite anyone interested to join us (SDUA Membership Application).  In addition, we plan other events throughout the year and details are shown on the Calendar page.

Starting May 1, 2021, SDUA will be holding in-person membership meetings at the Nichol’s Field clubhouse for those members and guests that are FULLY VACCINATED against COVID-19.  In addition, face coverings and social distancing will be required when inside the clubhouse.  For those members and guests that are concerned about meeting in-person, or unable to meet the vaccination and/or face covering requirements, the meeting will also be transmitted via Zoom.  Please contact Larry Faast, 760-504-5503, or use our Contact Us page, more information.
