After attending IRCHA the last 4 years in a row, I have decided to skip this years event. Why, I just do not see much of anything new in the way of heli's or equipment this year, and vendor attendance was way down last year. And I have been an Align fanboy, but I was extremely disappointed with Align's team member support last year, ignoring the public and leaving their tent for the most part unattended. Will save my money and wait for feedback on this years event.

3 1/2 hours is way better than 3 days out and three days back driving from Los Angeles. I used to do it every year. And I can thank my California son-in-law for the good idea of moving.

I would love to attend such an event and put a face with so many of the online people I talk with. Unfortunately, living in NH, it is just not logistically or financially possible at this point. Fortunately, there are many wonderful smaller events in this area that I can bring the family to and enjoy very much.

36 hour drive for me. Too long to drive. It was a blast last year since it was the first time going. But not going this year. Airline pilot school in two months

this will be my 5th year in a row to go to ircha.

6 hour ride from Erie pa is not too bad of a drive especially after just driving my son down to Fayetteville Arkansas about a month ago.(17 hour drive)

I would like to go just to experience it maybe once. It would suck big time to make that drive then have very few vendors or manufacturers show up. I would go to see CY fly in person, that's about it.

At this point there may be some rooms left in Muncie but be prepared to go to Anderson (which is not bad).
