This will be my first jet event that I officially participate in. Looking forward to it! I paid to attend the Tucson jet rally but only had an EDF and only flew Thursday(had to work the other days).
Hoping to get there Tuesday and burn fuel all week!

Default Coachella Jet Jam

One week away.

Just recieved a package from Patty at BVM, Thank you very much, Jersey Modeler gave us a super discount on his great fueler and smoke oil can. JPO has come thru with a great TOP GUN award, that will be voted on by the pilots. Our local hobby shop RiseUp Hobby Town and Horizon Hobbies have come thru with a SU-35 plane. We have lots great raffle and auction items too, including a NIB 3D printer. 7 awards are to be given away too.

Also DP Productions will be filming our event. They wanted to make a film about RC Jets. It should be a nice enhancement to our event. Papparazi, lol They did a wonderful story about the hunting eagles of Mongolia. Link is here. Mongolia Eagle Hunting, Eagle Hunting Festival 2020, Golden Eagle Festival, Mongolian Golden Eagle Hunting Festival

Just a friendly note: Please place your UAS number on your planes. We will have an onsite printer for you to use. While we are not going to enforce the placement of these numbers, we may be visited by the FAA. More on that at our pilots briefing. Don't worry its all really good.

AMA seems to be lagging on mailing out renewal AMA cards. If I have the email confirmation of paid renewal as well as my 2019 AMA card showing my turbine rating, should I be good to go?

the entire event was filmed by a professional videography team. I believe they are DPproductions on YouTube.

Dan & Coachella Event Team,

I have to say that your team has hosted another TOP ran event and Pacific RC Jets was very happy to help support it, and enjoy it, and see it growing to a Top West Coast event!!. It was a super group of pilots and families that showed up to enjoy the AWESOME weather and one of the best flying fields we have on the West Coast. Thanks again to the club for hosting such great event!! Did I hear mention of a Fall Event...or maybe I am starting a rumor....

Cheers,

Dirk

We had a professional Video company come for our event, below is a fine example of their work.

They will be processing the video that they shot, then we will be given stills and video content of their efforts.

I will keep you posted and upload it here.
