Thanks for visiting Chapter 168 in Dallas, Texas

We are an association of people in the Dallas area who have a broad interest in aviation, including factory certified and home-built aircraft. Many of our members have built and fly their own aircraft. Chapter 168 is very active and plans several events each month for our members.  Our monthly chapter meeting, held on the first Tuesday of each month, features an aviation speaker. Our meetings are open to the public and we welcome guests. Please check the event calendar for the next meeting time and date. We hope to see you there!

Ray Aviation Scholarship

The Ray Aviation Scholarship Fund is a scholarship program that is supported by the Ray Foundation, managed by EAA, and administered through the EAA Chapter network. Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA will provide up to $10,000 to deserving youths for their flight training expenses, totaling $1,000,000 in scholarships annually.

Meet Conor Macy

In June, we also saw the start of our third Ray Aviation Scholar as Conor Macy started his flight training at Rising Aviation High School.

Conor Macy’s First Day of Flight Training

Conor has been very active in our Chapter as a Student Member, so we are eager to hear from him how his flight training is progressing.

Our 2019 Ray Aviation Scholar Aidan Koch got his CFI rating on January 14, 2023 at the Denton Airport. Well done, Aidan!
