That's all just to create total confusion and distract from the LiPos 🤣

Does anyone know how to rent a golf cart at IRCHA? A phone number would be great.

Does anyone have an estimate of the peak attendees in the early 1990s and say 2019?

I've never went and its about 4 hours away for me. Looking at some footage from a few years ago, it looks like there was 40 people there.

What is it exactly, you are wanting to know, whether it is worth going?

Can't tell you about the early 90s, think it may have started even earlier than that in Ohio (at a dragstrip I believe?:l), with only a handful.

Was there in 2019 and it was a fairly typical IRCHA, plenty of people, well into the hundreds IMO. If you are looking for 'peaks', that would be around 2008/09/10 somewhere in there, REALLY peaked at I think, over 1100.

Is it worth going? It has never NOT been to me Around 13 of em, and twice the distance you stated. Love to have a 4hr trip to it

A few years ago it was over 1000 and a bit crazy on Friday and Saturday. I will miss our international friends we have made over the years. Every heli pilot deserves to attend IRCHA, it is a must do.

Dude - there were over 100 pilots there last year during the pandemic. First year for me was 2019 and there were over 500 pilots. That was packed pretty good. People were waiting in line some to fly. I live only an hour a way. I drive down there each day. If I lived 4 hours away... I'd have to get a hotel or only go one day I guess.

This year should be pretty big. We had 140+ pilots at Spring Fling in VA this year.

Pretty sure Oxy only plans to show one of their 700s at IRCHA. I have heard this from a few people anyway. Luca didn't sound to committed at the time of the podcast where he confirmed it. I wouldn't count on much for the 2nd one this year, but who knows?

I am happy to report that I got to the US without major problems. I got a lot of curious looks at the several security checks but no complaints.

And now the Heli is back in shape for IRCHA. I hope to get off work here in Cincinnati early on Friday!

Looks like about a three hr drive for me. That is a perfect day trip distance.
