DFW Lite Flyers and friends,

Since we just had our fly-in last Saturday October 1, we decided to miss the October meeting at Johnny Carino’s, October 13.

I know this short notice so pass the word please.

The plan is to have our Christmas meeting Thursday December 8th when most of the club gets together. We have not decided for sure where we will meet for the dinner party and gift exchange. With this advanced notice we might be able to get the room there at Johnny’s. We will let you know as we get near the date.

It would be helpful to me if I could get a note back from you so that I can get a head count to tell the restaurant what to expect. The sooner the better in case you forget. Regardless I will send out more information as we near December 9.

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.
