Pilot Maximus will be holding its first event Sunday March 7th 2010 from 9am to 8pm. There will be plenty of open airplane and helicopter flying time as well as planned flying games and contest. For competition there will classes for amateur and sponsored pilots. The venue is large and will accommodate the entire family. This event will be just a pre-curser to large events to follow. Visit http://www.pilotmaximus.com for more event and venue details. Check the Pilot Maximus website news blog frequently and let us know if you think you might like to attend or even if you have a contest idea that may have never been done. Our goal at Pilot Maximus is to create the most fun for your time and dollar. Just wanted to mention also that helicopters with Main Blades No larger than 350mm are welcome regardless of Lipo cell count. Reckless flying of any machine will get you grounded. So bring your fleet and bring your friends there will be something for everyone.

Attention DEMONSTRATION Pilots and Teams: Please let me Know ASAP directly if you are planning to attend and would like a FREE DEMO time slot to have the entire flying space to yourself or team to show off your skills and wares. Contact me at pilotmaximus@yahoo.com

Thanks and see you there,
Phil

Yes it will be on the schedule. So long as we get enough interest and people with planes to crash into each other there will be combat. With prizes. You did mean planes. Right? Now a heli cage match might be fun to see. However it would not likely last very long.

WE just landed a Big event sponsor who will be helping with the contest prizes and giveaways. Check back with the pilotmaximus.com website often for there will be exciting news almost everyday. We will have a limited number of banquet tables for pit space so get there early if you don't have a table.

Who's coming?

Just $20 to fly all day and from spectators I am asking for at least a $1 donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. And YES the place is HUGE with lots of fun stuff to do for everyone even if your not flying.

Well you will certainly be missed. I had a great time at your fun fly last summer Jason. It was very nice meeting you. You guys just put off a real nice vibe out there. I hope people can walk away from Pilot Maximus feeling the same way. I heard you got a new radio. I'm sure you'll like your new radio as much as I do.

Promo Video
I just posted a quick Promo Video to give a sneak peak at the flying site. Its certainly not to show off my lack of pilot skills. I hope you all come out and enjoy a real fun day of flying. Still looking for a few more demo pilots. Also looking for an idea of who would like to compete in which contests. Check http://www.pilotmaximus.com for details.

Thanks,
Phil
