Next Meeting

The November Meeting will be Nov 20th, 2021 at Trey and Brandi’s hangar, Fairview Airport. We will hold our annual chili cook off, and take nominations for new officers.

FLYERS: Fairview Airport (7TS0) is about three miles NE of Rhome, and four miles West of Propwash Airport. The 17/35 nice green runway is 2500 feet.

DRIVERS: From I-35W go west on 407 to the red light just over the railroad tracks in Justin. Take a left and go south to the next red light. Take a right (still 407) and go west about eight miles as you enjoy the many curves. There is a Dillavou Lane sign on the right side of the road. Take a left to the Hayden’s hangar. Look for the crowd.

President's Corner 

Hello All,

October 8th and 9th was our 59th Annual TX AAA Fly-In. I again want to thank all our members that helped put together another successful event. We had a good crowd and about 116 airplanes flying in and 22 new members joining the chapter. See the award-winning aircraft photos in this issue. Thanks to our historian and photographer Dennis Price for his great shots.

Our next meeting will be on November 20th at Trey and Brandi’s hangar, Fairview Airport. We will hold our annual chili cook off, so bring your best creations and win prizes.

According to our bylaws, November is the month we nominate members for positions on the board of directors. There will be a few openings, so please consider serving for the 2022 fiscal year.

As stated above we added new members at the fly in. Any member that has not paid their dues for 2022 please copy the renewal form off the newsletter and send in your dues. The cost is still $25 for a year of flying fun and friendship. I will have the roster at the meetings and can tell if you need to renew.

Stay safe and “keep em’ flying

Terry
