FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – NEW Locations! MORE Events! BIGGER Reach! National STOL is Expanding; Adding 7 New Event Locations to the 2023 Season Schedule!
The National STOL Series is excited to announce the 2023 Season Schedule
The 2023 season kicks off on March 18 in Jennings, Louisiana, at the 3rd Annual Swamp STOL Competition & Fly In. Known for its southern charm, Cajun flair, and great talent both in the air and on the band stage, Swamp STOL has fast become both a competitor and fan favorite.
Next, the series heads to Somerton Airport in Yuma County, Arizona, for Outlaw STOL. This one-day competition was established in 2020 by Jonathan Stains, and it is the second year that National STOL has partnered with the event.
In May, SoCal STOL moves to Flabob Airport in Jurupa Valley, California. Home to EAA Chapter One, Flababians, as the locals refer to themselves, are hosting the Series’ only West Coast event in conjunction with their 10th Annual Slow & Low Fly In.
Wayne, Nebraska, is the first new stop on the season schedule, making it the most centrally located event of the Series. The Wayne America Fly In is making STOL history as the only event to host both National STOL and STOL DRAG Competitions at a single event.
Sodbusters STOL has found its home! This August will be the event’s second year at Hartford Municipal Airport, the weekend before AirVenture and just a 30 minute flight to Oshkosh!
Rocky Mountain STOL, hosted in the picturesque town of Pinedale, Wyoming by Emblem Aviation, is joining the Series this season after a wildly successful showing at their inaugural event last August. The event quickly developed a reputation for spoiling pilots with breakfast, ice cream, and a bus ride up to the gorgeous Half Moon Lake Lodge for an amazing four course meal, creating a fully immersive experience into all that Pinedale has to offer.
Lonestar STOL, the Series’ founding event, will remain in Texas for its 4th year! For the past 3 years, Lonestar STOL also doubled as the Series National Championships. For the first time since its inception, the Series will host their Season Championships as a stand-alone event in December, with date and location to be announced.
Other new events being introduced to the season schedule are the Isle Fly-In at MIlle Lacs Lake in Isle, Minnesota (in conjunction with their Annual Breakfast Fly In for 600 guests), and Georgia STOL at Whitlock Field in Newnan, Georgia.
A Mid-Atlantic location and an event in Nashville, Tennessee are currently in early planning phases. Stay tuned for dates and locations to be announced in the near future!
