Lite Flyers,

Thursday night, February 9th, is our regular bi-monthly meeting at Jonny Carino’s at 7:00. We are going to discuss the next fly-out and set an agenda for the spring and summer events. We need your input to determine what YOU want to do.

Our bi-monthly meetings are a chance for us to get together and eat a meal, talk about our planes, our events, and what we can do to make the club more enjoyable for as many people as possible. It is almost that time of year that we need to blow the dust off our wings and ready our planes for the year.

I don’t want to beg anyone to come to the meeting Thursday, but I truly would like to see all of us there to kick things off. Flying weather is upon us soon.

Meeting location: Jonny Carino’s, 2175 Precinct Line Rd, Hurst, TX 76054

 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.
