    Old Julain Air Race!!! New website

    We have a new website that has gone live today. We are very excited about it and hope it will be beneficial in communicating with the RC racing community. The dates for our 2011 events can be found here as well as other info about our flying field.
    We just put it up this afternoon, if anyone has any problems loading or suggestions to improve our site please email me at ml@aeroprecisionmachine.com. There are some pictures of our past events you can check out. It is a work in progress and
    we have a few more additions coming for the future, like pre-registration. The old website www.oldjulianairport.com is in the process of being turned off, for all info about our races please refer to the new website, www.oldjulianairport.org
    .

    See you at the races,

    Mike Langlois

    Well done Mike. Can't wait to get out there again!
    A guy who used to live on this site and now is rarely here due to the "upgrade".
    Most likely fading away till the My Forums is fixed. Too bad.

    RE: Old Julain Air Race!!! New website

    looks good -

    Just out of curiosity why is it called "old julian" airport? Is there a "new julian" airport?

    just wondering if there's history to share..

    Looks like a great place to race, you should have tons of good times there.

    Out of all the places we could be, this is one of them.

    RE: Old Julain Air Race!!! New website

    Yep an Excellent place to fly and race. Mike has put in many hours on grading and laying out the course. Along with Jim Katz they set the pole sleeves in the ground for the long course and short . The course can also be reversed or changes fairly quickly. Jim Katz handled the design and construction of the light system and timing clock. John Gibson did the lap counting rig. A beautiful course and most likely the only AMA legal 3 pole race course in NC. Here are some pictures of various races.

    RE: Old Julain Air Race!!! New website

    In regards to the history involved in naming the Old Julian Airport.: A bunch of us guys were standing around one day and were trying to decide
    what to call the place . One of the men had noticed that that the road just before you get to the field is named Julian Airport road.
    Julian Airport, according to the people I have asked, was closed in the late 1940 to earlie 1950's.Due to our field being
    so close to Julian Airport road and , best I can tell,within 1 mile of thewhere Julian Airport was, we decided to call
    our field Old Julian Airport. At this time Icannot find anyone that knows exactly where the original Julian Airport runwaywas located.
