Some info Lodging -

Tent and RV camping will be available on a first come, first served basis. There are no hookups or potable water on-site. There is a rest area with a dump station about 10 miles South of exit 667 on I5. Unknown if there is potable water available there or not.

If you won't be doing the RV thing, there are a number of hotels/motels in the area which are listed below. Distances from the field / Airport are estimated based on Google Maps and the airnav.com website:

BAYMONT INN & SUITES ANDERSON - 7.9 / 5.0
BEST WESTERN PLUS ANDERSON INN - 8.1 / 3.9
GAIA HOTEL & SPA SHASTA - 9.5 / 2.7
SUPER 8 REDDING CA - 15.9 / 3.5
HILTON GARDEN INN REDDING - 16.0 / 3.8

Shipping Fuel/Tools/Helis

As of this posting, we have no facility for receiving fuel. We suggest shipping to the FedEx distribution center near the Redding airport. (See address below) **Make sure to select "Hold at FexEx facility" on your waybill**

I will check with Joel again to see if Gear/Helis can be sent to his shop:

J&H Diesel
Attn: [your name]
Helifreak Fun Fly
875 Twin View Blvd
Redding, CA 96003

or
[Your Name]
FedEx Shipping Center
6775 Woodrum Circle
Redding, CA 96002

*** MAKE SURE IF YOU'RE SENDING YOUR PACKAGES HERE, YOU CHECK "HOLD AT FEDEX LOCATION" ON THE WAYBILL!! ***

You will need to pick up your gear in person as we have no way to transport your shipment from the shop to the field.

Below is subject to change. This will be updated as soon as we know it's good info.
As far as we know, shipping back will be ok via J&H, but ***MAKE SURE*** you have pre-addressed shipping labels, tape etc to get your gear ready to go. You will need to get it to the shop on your own.

Remember, these folks are doing you a large favor; make it as easy and convenient as possible on them.

sounds like a blast ... I just went to the RCHN fun fly but didn't end up going until the last day so we just got to do some flying on our own. My friend who I went with knew lots of the other pilots and people at the event ...we did get to see some great flying compared to my skill level . Which is well lacking to say the least , at least I can fly helicopters . Very few of members in my club even try or give up after trying .

Please come fly at our fun fly, the key word is fun. Even if all you know is how to 3d hover come and hover. Great group of pilots will be attending, always a blast, always some really amazing flying. And the people just awesome.
