Chapter 12

Houston, TX

Our Mission:

Chapter 12 of the Experimental Aircraft Association, is located at Ellington Field in Houston Texas, and is an organization that promotes all forms of recreational aviation.  This includes interest in homebuilt, experimental, antique (or classics), warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultra lights, helicopters and commercially manufactured aircraft and the associated technologies that are built into each of the above.

This organization brings all people together that share this interest in recreational aviation and facilitates social interaction and information sharing between aviation enthusiasts. Many of the services that the EAA offers provide valuable support resources for those that wish to develop and improve various skills related to aircraft construction, restoration, piloting, aviation safety, and aviation education.

Every individual and organization with an interest in aviation and aviation technology is encouraged to participate (EAA membership is not required, but encouraged)..

We welcome everyone.  Come as you are and bring a guest; we are an all aviation friendly organization!
