We are just a few weeks out now! It looks like we will have a nice turnout for the event! Come join the fun!

We will setup on April 6th so feel free to arrive Wednesday. We will fly until Sunday. If you want to arrive before Wednesday let me know and we will work out the details.

If you want a tent I need to know by early next week. These are pre-pay.

If you want to reserve a powered parking spot send me a note and you can pay when you arrive.

Hi Jamie
You checked in on a post that I had responded to regarding the SAAB J35 Draken build. My name is Frank, and like many others, I wanted to thank you for the invite. Karen, and I will certainly try to make your event . most probably not bringing the Draken due to the tailwheel doors on the jet, but will bring our BAE 120 Hawk demonstrator.
Take care for now,
Frank

This video does a nice job of showing the facility. Lots of open space and a 100 x 2700' runway. Smooth, low cut grass...no grass clippings. We fly BVM Electras off of it regularly ... very jet friendly. 30A power plugs at each (paid) parking spot. Free Wifi. Bathrooms with shower. Full kitchen in clubhouse. Large hangar for overnight storage.

Looks like we will have a nice turnout! Come join the fun April 6-10!

Contact me to reserve a parking spot or prepaid tent!

Carolina Jet Fest 2016 starts one week from today. April 6-10 with Fri and Sat our sanctioned event dates.

I have just a few reserved parking spots on the main flight line (with power) available ... let me know if you're coming and have not yet reserved one!

Tent rentals are closed now, but if you want one let me know and our tent guy can probably accommodate.

See you next week!

Bad news ... due to severe forecasted cross winds Thur - Sun we are going to postpone our event. We do not want people driving a long way and not having a good time. We hope to reschedule but mark you calendars for Oct 19-22 for our fall event. Please spread the word to those you know may have been coming.

Thanks! Jamie

I was looking forward to the event, but that's the right call Jamie. I just checked my weather app and winds are strong and gusty for the next 3 days (that's as far out as my app shows).

I've got October booked on my calendar!
