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.

December 14, 2019: Young Eagles Rally and Picnic

We will be having our next Young Eagles Rally on December 14, from 8 am to 1 pm. We are looking for volunteers for assistance on the ground, speaking to youth about flying and flying opportunities, and flying the youngsters on their First Flight. Please contact our Young Eagles Coordinator Shane Mitchell to let him know you can assist.

Attention Parents: please pre-register your kids here. Pre-registered folks will have priority over walk-ups. Should you have any questions, please contact Shane Mitchell, the Coordinator for this event.

Thanks again for your continued support of providing our youth with the opportunity to become our pilots of tomorrow.

The centerpiece of this program has students build a Van's Aircraft RV-12 two-seat Light Sport Aircraft.

EAA Chapter 187 is co-sponsoring this project, providing experienced aircraft builders as mentors for the students. The aircraft is being built on the East View High School campus, with final assembly and operation at Georgetown Municipal Airport.

Funding for the project is primarily from charitable donations.

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!
