A few questions for those of you lucky enough to go as I had to cancel mt plans to go last minute due to prior obligations:

What was:
Final pilot number?

Are there Any new heli brands this year?

Anything new heli related that blew your socks off?

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

I heard somewhere in the range of 750 registered. To me I liked the Sab Comet and the interesting 500 eXo with a carbon monocoque frame by Compass. I didn't go just what I've seen posted and I liked.

750 registered pilots is good but not great
There didn't seem to be any one big ground breaking
new heli or product either

But it is good to see that glow power "nitro"
made a resurgence this year

ageing is manditory maturity is optional

I enjoyed the smaller turnout, it was not as crazy as the past few years.

The Compass Team pilot in that video is Henrik Clausen. He's an awesome pilot. Video does no justice to how he flies--incredibly hard with great control throughout!

Never did really hear the final count, but hate to hear it was a good 300
less than last several years past, if that is the true count.

But going up and down the flightline seemed as busy as ever to me, but did
have many more chances to fly this year on the main, (several cones open on
a regular basis out further at both ends).......just another great IRCHA
though all around, IMO

Can't give you an exact count but it was always over a 1000. Closer to 1100. down 30% is pretty significant.

I overheard one of the IRCHA guys say 729 while I was standing in the food line.

I was also told by someone else that IRCHA cheated on the count one year by signing up non-flying spouses for free. They were just looking for warm bodies to raise the count, probably to make the event more attractive to potential sponsors the next year.
