The Navy as (re)approved flying on Friday, November 9th! The event is back to the original dates of Friday-Sunday, November 9-11. There is also "bonus" flying on Monday, Nov 12, for anyone that wants to stay a little longer.
I received approval today from the Navy today to hold Pensacola Jets 2012 at Holley Field in Navarre, FL. The dates are Veteran's Day weekend, 9-11 November.
As you may know, Holley is a U.S. Navy training field, two paved 3500 ft x 150 ft runways, north/south and east/west. This link has info: http://airportnavfinder.com/airport/KNKL/
I will work with local hotels in Navarre to secure a group rate. I'll post more on that as it develops. Rob Baker has offered to serve as CD again for the event. We will try to get the website updated and in place soon for registrations. More info on that as it develops, as well. FYI, the Pensacola Jets 2011 website is still active and can be found here: http://www.alvinrc.com/jet/
Please don't use it right now to register! Wait until it says 2012. But, it is still a good source of info about the event.
We had a pretty good turnout last year as we got this event up and running again, so hopefully we can build on that this year. Thanks again to all you guys who showed up to help the Holley Flyers RC Club restablish Pensacola Jets.
That is all for now. Carry on.
