3. George Voss article on Fly RC, schedule unknown at this time.

Check out current issue Fly RC (FEB 2011) for coverage of "World Speed Record 446 MPH" Spencer Lisenby DS flight

Nice articles.

One tiny little nit from the MA article Dave. There is no such thing as a "parasailor".
A parasail is something you drag around behind a boat or ground vehicle, lofting
helpless non-pilots into the sky. What people fly at PotM are Paragliders.

is it true that "Paraglider" is the name of the device.

That makes the pilot a "Paraglidor" ???(sp?)

According to Wikipedia (my apologies to some) "A paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft."

Matin is right. There are paragliders, and then there are paraglider pilots.

Yep. But generally when you see a bunch of colorful jellyfish in the air at the same time
they're just referred to as "paragliders" representing the sum total of the aircraft + pilot.

Hey guys,

I maintain the Utah Flyers Organization thread for Flying Events in Utah, and am trying to get all the major fly-in events on the calendar so everybody in the state knows what's going on.

Does anybody know when Soar Utah 2011 is being held? Or... you know, if it's being held?

The soarutah.org web site seems to have reverted to a 2006 state of being, not sure what that's all about.

Are there any other events you'd like listed?

The Utah State vent thread can be found here.

Cheers,

Todd

Awesome! Thanks for the info.

Too bad it's not an annual event. I keep missing it.

Soar Utah 2012 is on!!!!

Soar Utah is on for 2012 and will be held August 30th - September 3rd.

We are planning on offering a day of Aero Tow, lots of slope fun flying, slope Man on Man War Bird racing and F3F. We will still be judging on the Scale ships but will not require them to be judged on their flying.

The website will be updated and schedules posted over the next 8 weeks. For now make sure you get the dates on your Calendars.

See you all on the Slope Soon!
