Ranger airfield fly-in

The Raffle Plane will be heading to historic Ranger, TX for a fly-in and airshow at the historic Ranger Field (F23) on Friday October 4 and Saturday October 5th.

This is a grass strip that was originally visited in 1911 when RG Fowler landed his Wright biplane there on his quest to win the William Randolph Hearst prize for crossing the US in 30 days.  Sadly, it took Fowler over 100.  This is a small, city-owned airfield that is maintained by volunteers, and they really want to get the word out about themselves.  This fly-in and airshow is a great way to get back in touch with history.

Vectors for Hope charity fly-in


Filed under: News, Raffle Plane, Raffle plane 7.0 - N6984X by Blair

Join this year’s new raffle plane at David Wayne Hooks airport in Tomball on September 28, 2013 from 10am to 2pm.

Vectors for Hope was founded by a small group of Houston area air traffic controllers when we got together to come up with a way to educate the public about aviation and to raise awareness for aviation charitable organizations. We have partnered with the National Air Traffic Controllers Charitable Foundation to provide a means of raising money for non-profit organizations.

Mission

To raise money for local charities, promote general aviation, inspire young people to get involved in aviation, and for the community to have a fun day at the airport!

General Information

The 1st Annual Vectors For Hope Fly-In will benefit some great aviation related organizations. They are Angel Flight South Central, The Houston Ground Angels, and Around the World for Life. These organizations provide free transportation to treatment facilities for patients with life threatening illnesses.
