Jets Over Kentucky Week 2014-"World's Grandest Jet Event"
"World's Grandest Jet Event"

Jets Over Kentucky Week July 6-13-2014

Jets Over Kentucky Week will offer even more excitement for 2014. Jets Over Kentucky drew 192 pilots from all over the world last year, and this year promises to be even better. Uninterrupted flying for our pilots the entire week. Flying will begin each day at 8:00am and conclude at darkness. All flying will be done from the main runway (5000 ft). Jet Central has sponsored three "Big Top Tents" (40X200) for our pilots.Two of the big tents are parallel to the concrete taxiway, and the third is in the grass, and parallel to the main runway. This Big Top will give pilots a clear view of all flying. A transport vehicle and trailer will be located at this tent for moving aircraft to the flight line. Pilots needing more space can rent as many sections as they need. If the entire 10X40 is not needed, each pilot is free to split the 250.00 cost with anyone willing to share. Pilots who rented space last year, will have first preferance for the 10X40 slots. The remaining 120ft of the"Big Tops"will still be available as free pilot space for pre-registered pilots, with 2013 attendees having their same place in the tent. We have plenty of space for all, so those new to the event shouldn't worry.Pop up tents are also welcome, and will be placed perpendicular to the east side Big Top in the grass area. No pop tents will be allowed on the taxiway or in between the Big Top Tents and the runway.Vendors Row like last year is perpendicular to the west Big Top (grass area). We'll have additional pilot space in the 40X200 tent located in the grassy area west of the taxiway. 10 slots in all big top tents will be premium rental space, and the remaining will be free pilot space. Pilots with free space will not have the entire slot to themselves. Depending on the number of aircraft, two or three pilots will share these accomodations. Pilots in all rental slots may choose to divide their slots with friends, or remain private.

Even more prizes, awards, and surprises for our polots this year! Something special from Jet Central, Four Spektrum Radios, Donated Kits and Accessories from sponsors, Money (50-50 drawing), Thursday evening swap meet, Friday night dinner (free to registered pilots, and sponsored by Jet Central), Saturday Night Awards Dinner (10.00 per person, 32 awards, Parade of Lights, Fireworks, T-28 Special, fighter Jet Showdown, Sport Jet Showdown, and much more.

Special Thanks to the City of Lebanon, Ky, The Lebanon Tourist & Convention Commission, and the Lebanon Springfield Airport.

Online Pre-Registrations from foreign countries or provinces have experienced a temproary problem. This will be fixed tomorrow.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey Lewis, it's Scott we will be riding with Kilroy and Gwen agin this year. I'll have the BBQ. What do I need to do to reserve a golf cart? Thanks and can't wait!

jeteye 02-25-2014 03:39 PM

Hi Scott,

We will have to forego golf carts this year. Just going to be too expensive to consider. We get the event carts from another source, and they will only let us have four for the event. You can use ours to make a fuel run or ect.

Hello Lewis,

Can't wait to attend this year again.

When sending in the pilot registration and tent space rental fee, do you want separate checks ?


jeteye 02-25-2014 06:33 PM

One Check will do,

We would like to thank Jonathan and Johanna Smith, and Usa Rc Jets for sponsoring three awards. See the updated awards list for their selections.

Bryce Watson normally sponsors the "Johnnhy Hernandez Memorial Award". I didn't hear from him last year, and he said he wanted it every year. If anyone knows how to get in touch with Bryce, let him know the award sponsorship will be held for him until March.
