Light Sport Aero Club
If we get enough interested members (approximately 5) we intend to organize a Light Sport Aero club based at WACO Field.  Members will organize into an LLC and purchase an LSA qualified aircraft, most likely an Aeronca Champ or similar plane.  Flight instruction will be available from several locally based flight instructors.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the LSA Aero club and learn to fly, or if you already have your Sport Pilot License or Private license and want to join a local club, call the WACO office at 937 335-9226 and ask for Don Willis for more information.
