Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Save the date! Zenith Texas Builders and Pilots fly-in / drive-in on Saturday, March 19th at Bourland Field (50F), approximately 20 miles southwest of Fort Worth, Texas.
Patrick and Mary Hoyt are inviting Zenith builders, fliers and enthusiasts to come and enjoy food, drink and camaraderie at our residential airpark home at Bourland Field.
The purpose of this event is to continue building the community of fellow Zenith owners in Texas, and to encourage sharing of information, ideas and esprit de corps among like-minded friends.
Aircraft parking is available in the grass along the west side of the runway adjacent to the first turnoff (as viewed if landing from the south). Fuel is available at the FBO on the north end of the airport.
The airport management asks that we disclose the following regarding Aircraft Parking along the runway: "While the grounds are in good condition, they are not groomed and intended for normal aircraft use, so operation in that area will be at your own risk."
