We want to say thank you to all the Pilots and Spectators that joined us for ArkanSTOL. We love flying in the backcountry and are committed to supporting events that highlight the sport and skill of STOL.
Congratulations to the winners of each class: Touring - Chad Breuer, Bush - Rob Brady and Light Sport - Steve Henry.
We loved to see the two young (17 years old!) pilots, Jaden Newman and Austin Clemens (1100 hours!) competing skillfully and receiving great times on this technical STOL course.
Thanks to the co-founders who came up with this incredible STOL event: Rusty Coonfield, Joe Edwards and John Young. Thanks to Pam Boulden at the beautiful Byrd's Adventure center for the hospitality, wonderful food and comfortable lodging.
Can't wait 'til next year!
