Sixth Annual SKSS Scale Great American Aerotow - August 16-19, 2012
Don’t miss the 6th Annual Silent Knights Soaring Society (SKSS) Scale Sailplane Aerotow, the largest event of its kind on the east coast. The venue is a meticulously manicured 82 acre flying site that generates some of the best thermals you’ll ever have the pleasure of specing out in. Our field includes convenience amenities as well as an air conditioned clubhouse where you can duck in for a few minutes of “cool down” after a long thermal flight.
We welcome RC pilots of all abilities. For novices, we’ll have a bunch of Easy Glider Electric Sailplanes ready for you to take your first solo flight. For seasoned aerotow pilots we’ll have a great collection of tow planes to launch just about any scale sailplane you can bring to the flight line.
The aerotow is a 4-day event with great lunches available every day at our sensibly priced club house grill. And on Saturday night we offer a special crab feast and Texas BBQ featuring freshly prepared LG crabs you won’t want to miss. OH and the Ribs And BBQ Chicken slow cooked goodness
And if all this great flying, food and camaraderie isn’t enough, we hold a Mega-Raffle on Saturday evening with a spectacular collection of prizes provided by our most generous hobby industry sponsors including AMR, Castle Creations, Desert Aircraft, Esprit Models, G-Force Hobbies, Graupner USA, Horizon Hobby G-Force Hobbies Aerosente and Tower Hobbies. Last year’s lucky winners received kits, engines, radios and much more. And you don’t have to be at the drawing to be a winner!
