The Latest News

It's Coming ...... Burrrrrrrr!!

First Snow Fall

Don't Look Now But...

We have been given the opportunity to put this C182 beauty in the club.  The owner is a CFI living in the area but he is too busy to fly it much.   A new Garmin 530 is scheduled to be installed soon.  It is IFR equipped with King Avionics and is on the North ramp in tie-down #22. The club is still negotiating the terms of the lease but we are hopeful it will be available soon with a target date of Christmas Day.

Rob Davidson is Joining Our Elite List of Instructors

From his very first ride in 1971 at 3 years old in a V tail bonanza, Rob was hooked on flying and airplanes.  He earned his pilot licenses, including his CFI, CFII, and MEI right here in the D/FW area in 1997.  He has been a part 135 instructor, part 121 airline Captain, airline training Captain in Nigeria for Arik Air, and a Chief Pilot on both part 135 and part 91 Gulfstream IV’s. He has over 7000 hours, several Atlantic crossings, flown extensively in Europe, Africa, South America, an ATP, and type ratings in the CRJ 200, 700, and 900 series Regional Jet, Gulfstream IV, EMB-120 Brasilia, and CE-560XL. Rob currently is Chief Pilot on a Part 91 Gulfsteam IV, but still enjoys instructing primary and advanced students immensely and sharing his passion for aviation with his students.

What is it and why?    more.....


a_TSALogoa_AdvisoryBannerSThe Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) continue to monitor reports on potential terrorist threats in the United States. While there is no specific or credible intelligence that al-Qa'ida or its affiliates are plotting attacks in the United States to coincide with the ten year anniversary of 9/11 , we remain at a heightened state of vigilance and security measures are in place to detect and prevent plots against the United States should they emerge.
