Jet Jam 6

Featured

The Jet Jamboree #6 is now in the history books.  We had a great time.  Good pilot turnout and excellent spectator attendance along with perfect weather (Maybe a bit hot 90+) made for a great day of flying.  Vic flew his turbine powered plane as a half time demonstration.  I did a quick interview about the model and Turbine related questions, seemed to go over pretty well with the crowd.  Lots of flying, the food was great at the Spitfire grill.  The runway looked perfect, the ground crew did an awesome job making the PMAC field look top notch.  If you missed the Jet Jamboree this year you should make an effort to come by next year.  It is worth the time spent.  John

1st Wing-It Flying Event

The first “Wing-It” flying event went really well.  We had 5 flyers.  3 more are close to finishing their planes and should be at the next flying event.  Many, many spectators showed up.  The weather was great.  No attrition other than one flyer removed his landing gear in an unplanned fashion. The Skymasters field looked great.  Ivan fired up up the grill and fed the crowd.   The first round consisted of 3 carrier landings (3 50′ boxes) and a 15 second climb duration glide with a spot landing.  Results:

Name  Carrier 1    2    3    Score Duration Points Spot Points Round Total
