    RE: Pensacola Jets 2011 is ON!

    Down to just a few days to go! Looks like Mother Nature is going to cooperate with us. The forecast calls for nice weather, low 50's at night, highs in the upper 60's/low 70's. It might be a little breezy on Friday, but the wind should be down a runway, or pretty close!

    Flying will open at 0900 on Friday, then 0800 on Saturday and Sunday. We have to be off the field by dark, so flying will end around 4 to 4:30 PM.

    We are still planning on a Saturday night 'get-together' over on Navarre Beach at the "Beach Monkey." Nothing formal, and it's a buy-your-own off of the menu.

    RE: Pensacola Jets 2011 is ON!

    FB - It looks like we may have a pretty decent turn-out for a short-notice event. Right now we've got 10 guys who say they're coming. The weather looks as good as we can expect for November, so I expect a few more to show from the GA Jets club.

    Come on down and bring your F-16!! It looks like you've done a great job with that jet. I hope to have some Air Force JROTC cadets from the high school out on Saturday to help with things, and I'm sure they'd like to see it.

    There should be at several types of Boomerang jets there, one of the better trainers in my opinion. Both Rocky and Randy will be flying one at the event.

    It got a lot of attention this weekend at our local club event, people were impressed at how well it flew and even more impressed at it's low cost.

    RE: Pensacola Jets 2011 is ON!

    Joe, we'd be glad to have you come over. I started by going to jet events, looking at jets, meeting folks, asking questions. Took about 3 years before I got one. The Baby Boomerang (ie. the 'Intro') was recommended and was what I got. The Intro has been replaced now by the Sprint (a little bigger) and the Nano (a little smaller).

    The Tornado looks like a great choice, as well, and has sleeker looks...faster, too! But here's where going to events helps, the asking questions part and seeing things first-hand. The Boomers break down and transport easily. I have heard this may not quite be the case with the Tornado. That's another reason I'm looking forward to seeing KC's Tornado.

    What's nice about all the jets mentioned here is that they are about as easy on the wallet as you're going to find for jet flying. Another nice thing is that if the jet gets a little, ahem, "battle tested", shall we say, repairs are no big deal.

    Well, to give you the count as of Wed morning, we have 9. If another club guy shows up and the 3 from GA Jets, that will make 13. Fender would be 14. Bob, you could be #15.

    But, yes, Saturday afternoon we will hopefully have a more accurate idea of who all is coming...

    i built mine to not be disassembled for transportation, the booms aren't glued on to the wings but the servo wires are single piece from servo to receiver, you can get to the wing bolts to remove them if necessary but it fits in the back of my F-150 (short bed) assembled no problem, you just can't fit another jet in there with it, that's why i'll most likely be bringing the trailer.

    Sounds great Steve. You are bringing your F-15, right? The OAT shouldn't be a concern.

    Joe, I sure hope so. I know I'll be flying my Boomer, Rob and Bill will be flying their jets. If Rocky's parts come in he'll be flying. I think a few others will be flying as well.

    Look forward to meeting you, too.
