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 counseling, and much more.

We will hold an in-person EAA Chapter 187 Meeting on Saturday, August 13th, 2022 at 10:00 am at the Georgetown Municipal Airport at 500 Terminal Dr, Georgetown, TX 78628.

Garry Mitcham, the FAASTeam Program Manager for Airworthiness from the San Antonio Flight Standards District Office, will be giving a presentation covering discrepancies and unsafe conditions found during the inspection of an Amateur Built Aircraft. This presentation also provides FAA Wings safety education credit for those interested. Due to Covid-19 concerns, he is making his presentation via Zoom.

We will provide the Zoom connection for the presentation for those attending the chapter meeting in person. (No smartphone or computer connection is necessary if you attend the meeting in person.) If you prefer, you can also register and connect to the Zoom presentation from home using this link: Zoom presentation registration. If you are registered at FAASafety.gov and wish to receive Wings credit, we will need to record your email address and send it to Garry after the meeting so you can properly receive the Wings credit.

After the presentation, we would like to hear about your experiences attending EAA Oshkosh AirVenture.

Light refreshments and drinks will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

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!
