With all the recent government shutdowns and other problems Americans are currently facing, there is a bright spot in the horizon for the economy right here in Texas. Redbird Skyport at San Marcos Municipal Airport (KHYI) is offering $1.00 per gallon of 100LL aviation fuel this month (October) for aircraft with piston engines. Yes, this is true. We did not hit a time warp. It is going on right now! There are some limitations and hours of operation but you cannot beat it! The word is spreading and many have begun taking advantage of this great deal. All you have to do is fly in and park!
During the first few days, a variety of interesting aircraft have already been seen at the Skyport ramp to get their discounted fuel. From T-6 Texans to Cessna 172s to lighter experimental planes to even a nice Boeing Stearman that landed this afternoon! Throughout the month, some nice planes are expected to land including some additional warbirds from various locations. Who knows what can drop by for us to see! Also, there will be certain days with special presentations.
Redbird Skyport is a modern fixed base operator (FBO) with truly great amenities for aircraft pilots and owners. Their facility is state-of-the-art with a great top-notch flight school, nice cafeteria, multiple lounges, modern flight simulators of various levels, meeting offices, and best of all, a super friendly staff!
