About Us

The Lone Star Maule Association's mission is to bring together all Maule owners and enthusiasts across the great state of Texas and surrounding areas for fun, fellowship and good ol' fashioned flying.

Formed in early 2013, our goal was to see how many Texas Maules we could get together at a single fly-in. The 1st annual Lone Star Maule Roundup was scheduled and held only a few short months later in Llano, TX (KAQO) and was a great success drawing over 25 Maules from around the state, neighboring states and even Mexico. In addition to the aircraft we were joined by Brent Maule from Moultrie, GA and dozens of Maule enthusiasts from all over.

We received a lot of great feedback from the first event and have held an annual Roundup the first weekend in May each year since. In addition to the Roundup we hold a couple smaller local fly-ins throughout the year and support other aviation groups by promoting and attending their events as well. Stay tuned for our upcoming events later this year. Highlights of our events can be found in the photo and video galleries.

If you live in Texas (or a surrounding state), fly a Maule and would like to join in the fun we invite you to contact us so we can add you to our mailing list.

Finally, as time allows we will be rolling out new website features that will allow members to host their own events and share their photos and videos right here on this site. An announcement will be made as these enhancements become available.

See details HERE. It would be nice if you would sign the guestbook (on the funeral home page) and send condolences to Susan Maule & Brent Maule (via facebook if you are their friends). Thanks, Russell A.
