Husky National STOL Series
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – The Series adds 3 new events to their schedule!
The Husky National STOL Series is delighted to announce the addition of 3 new events to the 2022 season!
The first stop of the year was Outlaw STOL at Somerton Airport in Yuma County, Arizona. This was a one day competition, established in 2020 by Jonathan Stains. Husky National announced their partnership with the event early January.
The Series is headed to the California Transverse Ranges for the SoCal STOL competition that will take place in the city of Tehachapi. SoCal STOL is scheduled to be a two-day event, and currently holds the title as Husky National STOL’ s highest altitude event at 4,001 feet above sea level.
Last but certainly not least, a welcome addition to the calendar is a stop at Stearman Field Fly In & Car Show in Benton, Kansas in June. National STOL is honored to be hosted by Clemmens Aviation at their home field during this annual event.
Other notable changes to the 2022 series schedule is Swamp STOL’s shift from the sweltering summer month of June to a much cooler March. Swamp STOL founder, Col. Matthew Peterson is in cahoots with the Jefferson Davis Parish and plans to WOW you with his southern charm and Cajun flair, by bringing in 300 pounds of fresh crawfish for a huge crawfish boil; and no Louisiana style gathering would be complete without jambalaya and the Bernie Allen Band! All this is included with your pilot or volunteer registration to Swamp STOL Deux!
Sodbusters STOL is making serious moves again! Founded by Jeff Pohl in 2019, the inaugural event was hosted the weekend after AirVenture in Jeff’s hometown of Milaca, Minnesota. National STOL teamed up with him in 2021 and relocated the competition to Brainerd, Minnesota, staying in keeping with the previous year’s weekend after Oshkosh.
The series decided to really shake things up this year for the North Central Event. Not only is Sodbusters STOL relocating out of state to Hartford, Wisconsin, just a hop skip and a jump-backwards into July, the weekend BEFORE AirAdventure! It’s STOL2OSH folks!
Tentatively, the Series is scheduled to travel to the great state of Georgia in September. We’ll see you all just south of Atlanta in Newnan, Georgia at the Newnan-Coweta County Airport! More details are forthcoming as we finalize this event.
