Our next bi-monthly meeting is the second Thursday in October 9 to be exact. The meeting time is 7:00 as usual at Johnny Carino’s. Come a little early if you plan on eating. Map link below.
On October 5, 2014 at 10:30am: We will be having a Fly-in In (drive-in) at Bob Widmer’s place. We will have a fish fry. For those that do not care for fish, we will have a grill for you to use to cook your own. Please RSVP to susaneowen at outlook.com by October 1 so that we can ensure that we have enough fish.
Keep in mind Bob’s strip is (SHORT), only 750 ft from the fence to the south end. Make sure you can take off and land in that distance. I fly my Challenger 2, and my J5 Piper Cub in and out all the time. Robert Hoskins can land his clean Rans S-14 with no problem. In other words, it is more specifically an ultralight field. Powered parachutes are welcome to buzz around too. We can also set aside an hour or so to do some shooting at the range if you will just use good safety principles. Please.

All of the paid members should have a copy of the roster which has all the phone numbers and e-mail addresses. If anyone wants to put together a flying event (fly out to somewhere), just contact people and make it happen
It’s your club, lets do some flying. Call someone and “make it happen”.
Meeting location: Johnny Carino’s, 2175 Precinct Line Rd., Hurst, Tx 76054, starting at 7:00.
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.
