Chapter News from the President
November 11, 2018
I visited with the new “Federal Tower Chief” about our waiver for the aerobatic box at NT Regional Airport. The waiver expired on August 31, 2018. He is not excited about renewing the box for us. Bill Denton encouraged me to speak with Brad Holt at the FAA office which I did last week. He gave me the needed application forms which I will fill out next week. We will see where this goes.
Tony Wood and I visited the folks at Breckenridge Airport about holding our Lone Star contest there in 2019. Tony will let you know the reaction we received at our annual meeting Dec 1.
We also visited Page Airport in Oklahoma City about the National Contest in 2019. If you want to know what happened, come to the annual meeting.
What is the Texas Aerobatic Championships? How was the National Aerobatic Championships this year. These subjects will be discussed at the annual meeting on Dec 1.
Don’t forget the Red Bull Air Races next weekend. Mike Galloway will be announcing the race. It should be good.
