EAA is a growing and diverse international organization with a wide range of aviation interests. Originally founded in 1953 by a group of people involved in building their own airplanes, through the years it has transformed into a wide group interested in everything aviation.

EAA Chapter 187 is a tight group of folks located in the Greater Austin Metro Area interested in building custom aircraft, flying, aviation, and beyond. We come from a great range of backgrounds, but share a common passion for the skies. We have regular scheduled meetings and events. We engage other events in the area, helping represent EAA and Experimental Aviation. We hold regular Young Eagles rallies, allowing kids age 8-17 to experience their first flights in a small airplane.

Want to find out more? Come join us at one of our regular meetings and introduce yourself. You will find that our members are open, friendly, and have a great deal of interesting things to talk about. Interested in building your airplane? You're in the right spot! We have builders assistance, tools loan programs, first flight assistance and counceling, and much more.

June 8, 2019: International Young Eagles Day Rally

EAA Chapter 187 is celebrating International Young Eagles Day on Saturday, June 8 at Georgetown Municipal Airport, weather permitting.

For information and to sign up to fly or volunteer on the ground, contact Haruko Reese.

We need as many volunteer pilots as we can have. We also need volunteers on the ground to take care of the paperwork and organization of the people.

We will let you know the schedule in details as we near the Rally. You need to be current EAA national member and finish the Youth Protection Program training.

It has been a while since the last Rally and we would like this to be a good kick start in our Chapter’s Young Eagles activities.

Our current plan is as follows.

  • Hourly group ground intro to aviation and preflight knowledge.
  • Pilots take the kids up to the skies. It will be a 20 minute set course.
  • Tower tour afterwards, if they are interested.
  • EAA booth for the organization information, or fundraising selling balsa wood airplanes (this has to be totally separated from the rally.)
  • Picnic out in the front of the terminal.

We need many volunteers to pull this off. Would you please find the time for this rally and help make it happen?

The Rally will begin at 8 am at Georgetown Municipal Airport's terminal building, and will last till around 12pm. The address is 500 Terminal Dr, Georgetown, TX 78628.

Rockdale Tiger Flight: help us build a Zenith CH-601

Rockdale Tiger Flight is a group organized by several EAA 187 members in Rockdale, TX.

The group is focused on teaching mid- and high-schoolers airplane building skills. We're done with the tail of RV-6, and have switched over to putting together our full kit for Zenith CH-601. We get together every Saturday at 10 AM, and focus on building those airplanes. We also offer weekly Young Eagles rides to kids, subject to weather and aircraft availability.

This weekly event is free to participants, and we are looking for help! Both kids and adults are welcome!
