GTRCC and Our Club History
In 1995 the club had nearly 100 members, but after
years without a flying field, the membership declined to
the very loyal core members.
In the spring of 1999 agreement on satisfactory
sublease terms was reached between the GTRCC and the TRA.
Based on these terms, the GTRCC successfully completed a
membership drive to get the necessary minimum of 50
members to make the sublease financially possible. The
process of concluding the lease was begun, necessary
studies were done by all parties (TRA, COE, & GTRCC) and
in September 2000 the
The initial sublease was for a period of three years.
The major terms of the sublease include a fixed fee of
$1500 per year plus $40 per member.
The City of Grand Prairie has taken over control of Low Branch Park which includes our flying site. They have toured our field and appear to be very receptive to our plans for the field.
In January 2005, we finally had a new lease for 5
years, with an option to renew for another 5 years in
