The West Alabama Aero Modelers (WAAM) will host its 3rd annual heli fly-in in Tuscaloosa, Alabama May 11-13, 2012, Friday-Sunday. This event was previously scheduled in the Fall, but has now been moved to May.

This is one of the best equipped flying sites in the country with paved parking, concrete pads, permanent sheds, running water, electricity, and climate controlled restrooms and clubhouse. More importantly, it features a HUGE unobstructed overfly area. See the attached aerial photo.

Although there are no RV hookups, there is plenty of room for RV's and other vehicles.

Landing fee is 20 bucks and includes lunch on Saturday.

Address:
6655 Watermelon Road, Tuscaloosa, Alabama

GPS Coordinates:
N 33016.698 W 087031.980

Our website is currently undergoing a makeover, but here's the link.
http://www.waam.us/

This will be an AMA sanctioned event and a current AMA is needed to fly. The sanction number is 0688

Hope to see you all there.
---------------------------------

Team Synergy pilot Steve Eldred shot some on-board video of the site on Jan. 18th with his Synergy E7 and it can be viewed here. Thanks Steve!

We are now listed on the AMA event finder, although the date is incorrect. The event is Friday sat and Sun, the 11,12 and 13th of May.

Saturday, is of course, the big day and as far as I know, pilot registration will be on Saturday, but Friday is open to all and is part of the event.

I took some pics last week of the field. The Trex 600N in the foreground is about 30 feet away for reference.
