Lite Flyers and others,
This website has run it’s course and will soon disappear. Please join us on Facebook.
Our new Facebook group is Ultralight Aviators of North Texas. CLICK HERE for Ultralight Aviators of North Texas.
As of our last meeting on December 13, 2017, it looks like the official club, as seen on this web site, is virtually at the end of it’s existence in the form it has always been since it’s inception back in March of 1993. The biggest problem facing ultralights is not only the lack of participation in the club and flying activities. the FAA, and the EAA have not been able to provide a suitable environment for training the many people that want to become involved in the sport of ultralight flight. We have no “legal” way to train newcomers to the sport at this time.
We have decided at the last meeting to allow this web site to run out our contract with GoDaddy so, regretfully, be advised that it may be gone soon. We are planning on a Facebook page soon. I will post it as soon as it becomes available.
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.
