  • Apache Pass Aerotow 2020 - EVENT POSTPONED

    Due to the events around COVID19 we have decided it is best to postpone this event indefinitely.

    We had such a great time and event last year so plan to join us at the Second Annual Apache Pass Aerotow. The event will be held again at the Apache Pass Event Center located just northeast of Austin, TX on April 16-19, 2020 outside of Rockdale, TX. The facility is an incredible destination flying site with many amenities. We will have tow planes capable of towing virtually any model glider you may bring.
    • A 1400’ grass runway will be used for the event
    • Event fee $50 for the entire event or single days $25 per day
    • Lunch will be available daily on the field ($ TBD)
    • Four national chain motels and an equivalent locally owned motel are approximately ten miles from the flying facility in Rockdale, TX
    • An RV park is just off the end of the runway with full hook ups available (contact Apache Pass Event Center for information, see below for their website)
    • Also, located at the event center is an outstanding steakhouse and icehouse
    • Saturday evening banquet ($ TBD)
    • Also, Austin with great shopping and history is just about an hour away

    For more information on the Apache Pass Event Center and its amenities please see the website below:

    Get your reservations in early and plan to join us. April is the best time of the year to fly in Texas and the lift was epic last year.

    Ok, I'm all signed up. I didn't see an option to prepay so I'm assuming that we are going to do like last year and pay at the field. See y'all in April.

          Looking forward to meeting you Mike. Please be sure to register. You don't need to pay in advance, we just would like to know how many to expect for planning purposes.
