Spectator Information

National STOL events aim to be a family friendly day out at the airport for both airplane enthusiasts and those new to general aviation! Be sure to check the weather and plan accordingly with hats, sunblock, jackets, or rain gear as necessary. Food trucks will be available, or you are welcome to bring small coolers. Camping chairs are encouraged!

Tickets are $15 through October 31. Starting November 1, prices will increase to $20. Children 12 and under do not need a ticket to attend.

If you are flying in, transient parking is available. Please note that the airport will remain open all day Thursday and Friday. However, be sure to monitor UNICOM. If you arrive during the practice on Friday, our airbosses will advise you of any competition traffic and may ask you to hold for a break between heats.

On Saturday, plan to arrive prior to the start of competition at 10am and depart after the close of competition (around 3 or 4pm). STARTING AT 8:00AM SATURDAY, THE AIRPORT WILL BE OPERATING BY PPR ONLY. CALL 903-885-4911 AT LEAST ONE HOUR IN ADVANCE OF ARRIVAL.

When you land, please advise if you are 1) a competitor, 2) parking and camping underwing, 3) parking the aircraft only for the weekend, or 4) coming in and departing the same day. This will aid in directing you to the appropriate area.
