After the year that 2020 was, everyone is looking forward to a fresh start in 2021. What better way to kick off the year than to fly your plane to the beautiful Lajitas Golf Resort for lots of golf, a little aviation education, and a great time.
Come join Texas Top Aviation on March 24th-26th, 2021 in Lajitas, Texas for the 2021 Texas Top Aviation Fly In at Lajitas Golf Resort. Lajitas is home to the Black Jack Crossing Golf Course, which was named the Most Beautiful Course in Texas by Golf Magazine.
The fun starts off with your arrival at the Lajitas International Airport (T89) on Wednesday morning, March 24th. The new 6,500 foot concrete runway has no problems accommodating any size aircraft, while the FBO ramp has plenty of room for all the pilot/golfers. Both Jet A and Avgas are available for fueling purposes.
A resort shuttle will be waiting to take you, your buddies, and your golfing gear to the resort. Lajitas Resort will provide an exquisite menu for the welcome lunch on Wednesday. Then, Wednesday afternoon, it’s time to hit the links! Drinks and dinner will follow at the resort.
2021 will mark the first annual Texas Top Aviation Fly In Golf Tournament. The tournament will be scored under the Peoria Format (see #2 on page 2) to give everyone a fair shake. Even a 30 handicapper has a chance to win! The tournament will take place over both afternoons of golf.
The speaking schedule has been finalized for the pilot seminar on Thursday morning, March 25th. Scott Williams, President of COPA, will kick things off with his presentation “Top 10 Legal Mistakes Made By Aircraft Owners.”
Next, Pedro Vargas, CFI and Army Guard Blackhawk and King Air Pilot, will present on Weather, both pre-flight and in-flight, including Nexrad & Radar Usage, Personal Minimums, and the Go/No-Go Decision.
Hank Gibson, MMOPA Master Aviator, Platinum CSIP and Gold Seal CFI, will conclude the morning with a “Back to the Basics of Flying” discussion, emphasizing the important little things we all learned during private pilot training which could save your life.
After lunch Thursday is round of golf number two, followed by the crowning of the 2021 Texas Top Aviation Fly In Golf Tournament Champion (there will be a prize!), followed by drinks and dinner.
Friday, March 26th will be go home day. Breakfast will be available if desired. Early checkout Thursday evening, March 25th, is available also. Please note upon registering if early departure is desired.
The event will run $1075/person ($815/person for a non-golfer). That includes both rounds of golf and accommodations for the 3 days and 2 nights. Attendees will be charged separately for meals.
We hope to see you there!
