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!


Chapter 168 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.

EAA Chapter 168 was approved to administer the 2021 Ray Aviation Scholarship program in March and the chapter BOD nominated Julian Brown-Griffin for the scholarship in April.
Julian submitted his scholarship application to the Ray Aviation Foundation at the end of April that was approved for the $10,000.00 scholarship grant in early May. Once Julian was approved for the scholarship, a meeting was set to review the Ray Aviation scholarship requirements with all the individuals that would be involved in his flight training. At the end of the meeting the ‘Ray Aviation Scholarship Training Agreement’ was signed by all the participants; scholarship student, flight instructor, chapter scholarship coordinator and
parent guardian.
Since that time, Julian has already had several training flights and has logged 2.8 flight hours with his instructor. He is also studying for his FAA private pilot written test.
