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.

October 12, 2019 Chapter Meeting: "View from the Air, in a Composite Canard"

In September, we will be joined by Scott Fish, builder of a Cozy Mk. IV.

Scott will present on his experience in the terminal phase of building and the transition to First Flight with a composite plans built aircraft.  He will cover some of the difficult choices facing a builder at this phase in balancing the desire for bells and whistles and the desire to finish and fly.  Scott will also discuss his experience with obtaining the Airworthiness Certification and Operating Limitations and outline plans for the Phase I testing for his particular aircraft.  He’ll have a short slide show of the build, but has presented on those details before.

Scott is a research faculty member at the University of Texas, and is currently on loan to the Department of Defense to assist with R&D and testing of robots and drones for Army and Marine Corps Infantry. He’s been building the Cozy MKIV for almost 5 years, and is a current Private Pilot.

The meeting will begin at 10 am at Georgetown Municipal Airport's terminal building. 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!
