E-Jets International 2014 / VENUE CHANGE !!!!

E-Jets international is back. The TORKS RC club has decided to bring back E-Jets International.

Now at Darby Dan Airport in Columbus Ohio.

The official event will be held September 5-7th. September 4th will be held as an open flying date but you can still come earlier in the week to fly if you want.
The format this year will be similar to previous years with flying time separated between sub 100mph aircraft and hand-launched airframes, and higher performance airframes with landing gear. The event will have a more relaxed feel this year as we get used to holding event s at our new facility. We also want to have it more pilot focused. There will be some awards for particular aircraft as in the past, but we have decided to forgo the competitions for this year (We will still have the radar gun there this year. We will keep track of aircraft speeds for the event, but were not going to stop general flying for a contest). We might have a mid-day show on Saturday only but we won’t have a candy drop or an aircraft flyover as in the past. Turbines allowed after 5pm if you are a registered E-Jets pilot.


We are moving the venue for this year's E-jets International from Deer Creek State Park back to the spacious Darby Dan Airport. For those that don't know, Darby Dan is a private airport with 5000' of unobstructed runway. The 2.5 inches of rain we had last week has our paving project once again on hold, and rather wait till the last minute with our fingers crossed, we thought it would be prudent to make the change to a proven jet flying facility. We have reached an agreement with Best Western Suites, 10 minutes from Darby Dan, as our headquarters hotel. Rates are $78.00 plus tax, and we have plenty of rooms available. Mention E-Jets for the discounted rates. Phone is, 614-870-2378. Darby Dan is a serious jet flying facility with hangar storage for models and plenty of room for primitive on site camping. If you are a registered E-Jets pilot and have a turbine aircraft, bring it along. We will be opening the site for turbine aircraft each day after 5:00 IF there are enough models present. Naturally higher performance EDFs can fly during these times also. We will have tents for rent if anyone is interested. Please contact Kevin or myself directly for pricing. TORKS goal has always been to run our Jet events with class and the proper way. This venue change will guarantee that happens. September yet? Thanks, Terry Nitsch
September yet?

Congratulations on the return of EJI Kevin! I`ve never been able to attend, but I still enjoy all of the pics, vids and reports. Maybe someday I`ll be able to make the trip. Lee

We are excited to bring this back. As you might imagine, we have had many inquiries over the last year. We finally had the opportunity to expand this new facility to be able to handle events. The park management has been great to work with. I am excited to try some of the other activities at the park as well, especially the golf course

Kris, I have a few planes you can borrow for the event, nice try

Super !!
JC and Ken, it will be really great to have the Canadians back at E-Jets! The club is working very hard to make our new site "Jet Friendly". You guys should definately consider renting one of the waterfront cabins. Sleeps six, nice kitchen and fire pit outside. The perfect retreat. Were also going to have a party at the lodge Saturday night for attendees and friends. The lodge is very close to the cabins. The new flying site is rustic, private and very Canadian looking. It's a good place to be!! Terry

JC it will be an honor to have you folks back. The "Boss" might want to come along and bring her furry friend. There is an extensive horse back riding area at the park! Good to hear from you my friend. I'll post how to best make the reservations this week.

Rest assured Bob, I haven't forgotten the EDF Jet Jam in May. We are so lucky to have two great EDF events now. One in May to start off the flying season and another in September to finish off the season. It's just Spetember is safely way off in the future and May is right around the corner. I got work to do yet to be ready and May will be here quick enough without me rushing it.

This is going to be an awsome EDF flying season coming up.
