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!

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.
Aidan Koch, our Ray Aviation Scholarship recipient, finished his quest to receive a Private Pilots License when he successfully completed his check ride on July 24th.
It was an interesting year, as he started training last summer and finished this summer. Along the way he switched flight schools, completed his first year of college at the University of Texas (Austin) and had training put on hold because of a pandemic, but he persevered and completed his training here in North Texas.
We also want to thank Norm Biron who mentored him and navigated him through some flight school issues. Sam Cooper also assisted in the accounting and dispensing the Ray Aviation Scholarship funds. Well Done.
