Welcome to Ben T. Epps Flight # 102!

Ben T. Epps (February 20, 1888 – October 16, 1937), known as “Georgia’s First Aviator” was an American aviation pioneer. In 1907, he built a monoplane of his own design, now known as the Epps 1907 Monoplane. This was followed by other original monoplane and biplane designs in 1909, 1910, 1911, 1912, 1916, 1924 and 1930. He died of injuries as a result of an airplane crash. The Athens-Ben Epps Airport is named in his honor.

Flight 102, Ben T. Epps (Atlanta, Georgia), was chartered on January 22, 2003. Our flight currently meets on the third Tuesday of every even month. Unless posted otherwise, our meetings take place at the American Legion Post 160, 160 Legion Drive, Smyrna, GA 30080. Our membership includes Daedalians from all about the Atlanta Metro area.
