Thumbs up I'll be there!

The engine is back on the mount with the aid of Gary Sobeck and I am busy installing all the accessories, baffles, etc. My target is to get it done in time to break in the engine and get in a few flights to practice the new Intermediate Known sequence. The new canopy is in place but it will be ugly without paint for now. I'm expecting lots of power from the Danny Bond built motor so you all had better step up your game. See you at Dunnellon.

Just a quick reminder.... The IAC judges’ school at CSG is next weekend, Mar 17 & 18. This is a great way to learn whether you’re a flyer or not.

Be sure to catch Ron Schreck's webinar on RV acro, March 27, 2018, 7:00pm CST

Ron will discuss everything from flying aerobatics for air shows, to competition or just for fun. How to equip your RV for aerobatics, maneuver basics, safety and more. Ron is a National IAC judge and competes in the Intermediate competition category in his RV-8, "Miss Izzy".

And while not an IAC event, be aware Bill Finagin will be at Triple Tree Aerodrome the week before SnF to conduct his famous advanced upset/spin training in his Pitts S-2C. Valuable and worthwhile training for any acro pilot and goes beyond the basic upright spin training that many may have already experienced. Details below.
