E-Jets International 2012
OK guys, here we go.... E-Jets International is gearing up for another great year at a new venue. I realize this posting is a bit early but I have received quite a few pm and emails about the event (given the torks field loss). We received clearance for the new venue this evening.
The event will take place at the home of the Columbus Big Birds (ama chartered club) .... Darby Dan Airport... 7535 West Broad Street, Galloway Ohio
The Tork's website can be found here... http://torks.com/
same great volunteer staff, AND MANY GREAT VENDORS AND PILOTS.
This thread will be for all things E-Jets related. We will post updates here... and welcome suggestions as well.
This is a 4 day event: September 6,7,8,9 ... Wednesday will be event setup day ... pilots can fly but i will need to check on the availability before wednesday during the week.
Pictures of the airport (private) and runway (6000ft) are attached. The hangar you see in the pics will be available for aircraft storage overnight ... as long as there is room left (its big).
This location is about 15-20 minutes away from the old torks field.
One new thing this year ... turbine aircraft are welcome to fly with edf aircraft after event hours (for registered pilots).
