Hello Friends,

I am pleased to announce the 2012 Mid America R/C Heli Fun Fly scheduled for June 1st thru 3rd, 2012. This years' event will take place at Grosse Ile Airport on the island of Grosse Ile, Mi. after months of planning and negotiating we have permission to fly on one of the airports two runways. The runway is 8850 feet long offering us an incredible amount of space for our flight line. This year the event will be held in conjunction with the Grosse Ile Island Fest also occurring at the airport during the Fun Fly.

Moving the event to the airport offers several new amenities:

Night Flying
Camping
Motor Home Parking
Full Scale Helicopter Rides
Full Scale Plane Rides
Carnival Games and rides for the family.

Last year due to circumstances beyond my control the XFC was held the same weekend. But with a little effort and some luck the XFC will be two weeks later and I assure you there will not be a lack of talent at this event.

Demo Pilots planning to attend!!!!

Nick Maxwell - Team Thunder Tiger, Team Futaba,OS Engines & Team Rotor Rage
Curtis Youngblood - Curtis Youngblood Enterprises

Me too!

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

Yes, the free bridge is on the South end of Island.
The Funfly/Airport is on the South end of the island.
No need to use the Toll bridge, unless you just want to.

And if you are in this hobby already, you must have some type of "disposable" income.

"Disposable" - I should look that word up, I think it means throwing money away.

Fly with scheduled ground contact !
