Great fall flying with good friends and fun.

Great raffle prizes from AJ aircraft, Desert Aircraft, Flex Innovations, JRPROPO, Holy Smokes, Aero Graphix, Aero Cumulus.

We will have food and drink available all day. Also this year Aero Cumulus Smoke Fluid is providing smoke oil to all pilots with smoke systems for the entire fly-in for free to smoke the sky or the flight line!

The Flying field is on the grounds of the Rolla National Airport. If you care to fly your full scale in, arrangements can be made to come and pick you up and take you over to the field. Camping with tents, fifth wheels, etc. is allowed however there are no hookups or electrical on site. Generators are welcome and encouraged for your ultimate comfort level. The only thing that we ask from you is to have a blast and fly a bunch!

This event is in Vichy right? I have family that live 5 minutes from the Vichy/rolla airport and my uncle was a mechanic there for years. I’m going to do everything I can to get a few of my planes ready and make it down there. I’m in Quincy Illinois so it’s about a 4hr drive.
