Our next bi-monthly meeting is the second Thursday, August 14th. Meeting time is 7:00 as usual at Johnny Carino’s. Come a little early if you plan on eating. Map link below.
We have a couple of upcoming events which we will be able to discuss at the next meeting, Thanfuly the wind has finally calmed down.
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
On Friday August 15, 2014, we have a Fly out to Clifton Texas to Bunkhouse BBQ. We will meet at Clifton/Isenhower (7F7) Airport at 4:00pm. 7F7 is about 20 miles northwest of Waco. It just off the D/FW sectional. Most of us fly from the northern part of the D/FW area and that puts the trip around 100 miles. About an hour flight. More information on this at the August 14th meeting.
On October 5, 2014 at 11am: Fly In (drive-in) at Bob Widmer’s place. We will have a fish fry. Please RSVP to susaneowen at outlook.com by October 1 so that we can ensure that we have enough fish. Keep in mind my strip is 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. More on all this at the bi-monthly meeting.
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.
