DFW Lite Flyers and friends,
It’s been a while since updating this part of the site. We have one more big event to celebrate the second annual World Ultralight Fly In the first of October. The object for our club on this day is to get as many planes in the air and document our flights on that day. We each then submit this to the WUFI web site to record our individual flights. Here’s the deal:
On Saturday, October 1st, our next event will be at Joncy Walden’s field near Mineral Wells. That is the same day as the “WUFI” World Ultralight Fly-In. Check out that site. Next you need the location of Joncy”s field. Find his location HERE.
NOTE: Skyvector apparently has the wrong street address. It is: 3214 FM 113 North, Weatherford, 76086
The event starts in the morning at Joncy’s location at 9:00 with competition of various types including a critter drop, etc.
We will be having a pot luck type lunch, so bring some food.
First we need to make sure our aircraft are in safe flying condition to make the trip. I am sure there will be fuel available even if we have to drive to a gas station. Tell your friends that have a light plane to join us. If you know someone at another flying club, pass this information along.
Next meeting is October 14 at Jonny Careno”s in Hurst, Tx at 7:00. Come a little early if you want to eat. They would appreciate that. See the map below for directions. Their address is 2175 Precinct Line Rd. 76054.
Bob Widmer, President
Welcome to the DFW Lite Flyers
Our club serves the Dallas, Fort Worth, and general North Texas sport flying community. The DFW Lite Flyers are a group of people bonded together by a love of light sport aviation. We are dedicated to the promotion of aviation safety. We encourage more education and improvement of personal flying skills by all members of the Ultralight and Light Sport aircraft community. We strive to promote growth in the hobby of sport aviation. We tailor our events to encourage participation not only by pilots but their family members as well.
We are directly affiliated with the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) as club number 393. The interests of our club members range from Trikes, to Powered Parachutes, Light Sport Aircraft, Experimental Aircraft and of course Fixed-Wing Ultralights. Since the new Light-Sport aircraft and Sport Pilot rules have been implemented there has been a great deal of interest into this exciting area of sport aviation.
In general we have at least one flying event every month. These events feature good food, lots of flying and even better fellowship. Please check the calendar shown at the left of the page for our next meeting or flying event.
Currently we are accepting new members to our club, and encourage anyone to join. You can even join right now online! Club dues are $25.00 per year or $35 per year for a family membership. Additionally, our club also requires current EAA membership. Through the use of our website, meeting programs, and personal contacts, you can access the vast body of knowledge among our experienced members, builders, and pilots.
