CJAA Texas Jet Blast Pilots Arrive Today

CJAA Pilots are expected to begin arriving at the Sulphur Springs Airport Wednesday afternoon. KSLR was chosen at the site for the 2019 ‘Jet Blast’ a fly in and training opportunity for jet aircraft pilots from across the country.

Due to weather conditions around the United States some aircraft may be delayed. Sulphur Springs Airport and Tourism Director Joey Baker said, “No one has cancelled reservations at local hotels.” Baker went on to say that, “There may be some delays in the activities, but nothing is cancelled at this time.”

These local businesses helped make the ‘Jet Blast’ a success:

  • The Southwest Dairy Museum donated ice cream treats
  • Alliance Bank provided a freezer for the ice cream
  • Lucky Donut provided a weeks worth of donuts and pastries
  • Fix and Feed provided bottled water
  • Famer’s Electric COOP provided bottled water
  • Saputo provided coffee creamers
  • Ocean Spray provided juice

The airport terminal building is always open to the public. The public is invited to come to the terminal building to watch activities. However the public will not be able to venture into Aircraft Operating Areas.

A mix of activities will be happening around Hopkins County. Some will be on the ground at KSLR, and some will be at altitude. The ‘Jet Blast’ is not necessarily a public event. It is an opportunity for jet pilots to gain skills and certifications. There will be aerobatics preformed over KSLR, but there will not be a public airshow.
