Our Approach

Our Approach

We are a new club just forming with the goal of becoming a 501c3 Educational Foundation. The board is currently working on paperwork with both the State and Federal for this more to come soon. Since we are not the traditional Social Club and non-equity. We do not have a Safety officer or Maintenance officer, all PIC's are responsible to verify the flight readiness of the aircraft. Below is the current board once we get everything rolling we hope that others will enjoy a turn leading with this unique flying club.

Opened Position


Brian Carlson

Vice President

I have been flying since I was young, my father introduced me to aviation. We moved up to Lago Vista and found a hanger that is now our home. I decided to get things rolling again and try to increase the number of pilots. I hope you come and share our love of flying and keep learning.


Don Zimmerman


Owner of two of the club aircraft and a licensed pilot since 1985, Don has a passion for aviation with a pedigree to match.  Father an Air Force fighter pilot and brother a commercial airline pilot, he grew up flying his families Bonanza and enjoys passing on his love of aviation.


Stephen Driskell


Private Pilot with over 31 years as a pilot not counting years wanting to be a pilot. Got back into aviation 6 years ago after 15 year break to help build a family. I want to share my passion of aviation with others and believe this this club will do just that.

My goal as a pilot and instructor is to be constantly growing, adding to my knowledge and proficiency, so that I can pass that on to others.
