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.

On December 4th, our Ray Aviation Scholar made his first Solo Flight. Unlike many of us who were on a regular instruction flight when the instructor exited the airplane and sent us around the pattern three times solo, Julian had a scheduled day for his first solo flight. He invited family and a few friends out to Dallas Executive Airport to help witness and celebrate the event. Norm Biron was one hand that day to watch Julian fly the Cessna 150 solo around the traffic pattern and then congratulate him for his big accomplishment.

Julian followed that major hurdle with a second later that month. On Dec 29th, he passed the FAA written exam with a score of 82%. That is terrific. He now has a clear training path to that final “Check Ride” hurdle to receive his Private Pilot License.
Congratulations Julian and keep up the hard work.
