SNAG Fly-in at Galaxy FBO
Galaxy FBO hosted the Southern Navion Air Group’s fly-in and meeting over the past weekend. Dozens of Navion owners met at the Conroe North Houston Regional Airport.
The Navion is a U.S. made single-engine, unpressurized, retractable gear, four-seat aircraft originally designed and built by North American Aviation in the 1940s. The Navion was envisioned as an aircraft that would perfectly match the expected postwar boom in civilian aviation, since it was designed by the same company which produced the North American P-51 Mustang. Today, it is difficult to find any two Navions that are alike as many Navion aircraft have been modified and updated with modern avionics and modern more powerful engines.
The Southwest Navion Air Group originated in 1971 as the Southwest Navioneers. Over time the name was changed to Southern Navion Air Group, and the members began referring to themselves as the SNAG.
