Is Detroit mainly a time to watch the pros and see the vendors or is it practical to do some flying as well?

Is this the event where they have the pros give lessons?

You can fly all you want. The flight line is over a mile long so you can basically setup where you want. You will also get to see a lot of pro pilots as well. It looks like they are having the flight school again this year. It takes place the two days prior to the start of the funfly.

Not many vendors go to Detroit maybe a few but last year the only one selling was experience.
Detroit is all about flying and rubbing elbows with the best in the business!

Yes the pros give lessons for 2 days for a cost of 450 bucks I believe for both days.

Check the website for cost and availability.

Don't register! Everyone that registers Less ins Steves odds of winning something in the raffle!

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

450 bucks...

Why when we can get lessons for the cost of brats and charcoal?

Hollywood Tom

Detroit is where he got that name.
Jeff is good at digging up old stuff maybe he can find the TV clip that Tom did his second year at Detroit.

Just wondering are you sure you are not confusing with the funfly in Mt P? We had a couple of TV channels come out and on the west side of the state it was shown on TV 9 & 10
