Default 3rd Annual Tuscaloosa heli fly-in, May 11-13, 2012

The West Alabama Aero Modelers (WAAM) will host its 3rd annual heli fly-in in Tuscaloosa, Alabama May 11-13, 2012, Friday-Sunday. This event was previously scheduled in the Fall, but has now been moved to May.


This is one of the best equipped flying sites in the country with paved parking, concrete pads, permanent sheds, running water, electricity, and climate controlled restrooms and clubhouse. More importantly, it features a HUGE unobstructed overfly area. See the attached aerial photo.

Although there are no RV hookups, there is plenty of room for RV's and other vehicles.


Landing fee is 20 bucks and includes lunch on Saturday.

Address:
6655 Watermelon Road, Tuscaloosa, Alabama

GPS Coordinates:
N 33016.698 W 087031.980

Our website is currently undergoing a makeover, but here's the link.
http://www.waam.us/

This will be an AMA sanctioned event, but the sanction number is still in process, as of the date of this post.

We hope to see you all there.

------------------------------------
Team Synergy pilot Steve Eldred shot some on-board video of the site on Jan. 18th with his Synergy E7 and it can be viewed here. Thanks Steve!

We are now listed on the AMA event finder, although the date is incorrect. The event is Friday Sat and Sun, the 11,12 and 13th of May. The AMA sanction number is 0688.

Saturday, is of course, the big day and as far as I know, pilot registration will be on Saturday, but Friday is open to all and is part of the event.

Looks like we're gonna have a pretty good pilots drawing this year.

A special thanks to you vendors that have contributed so far!

I'm looking forward to this event!

yup!
To fly, or enter the pit area you must have a valid AMA membership card.
and there is also a 20 dollar fee to fly.

Show up to watch is free.

There is a small sub-field with a shed and a table for anyone who is a beginner and is just hovering, especially the smaller models
