"Worlds Grandest Jet Event" / Jets Over Kentucky 2012

"Worlds Grandest Jet Event"

Jets Over Kentucky Week July 8-15-2012
AMA SANCTION / 12-0472

Jets Over Kentucky Week will offer even more excitement for 2012. Uninterrupted flying for our pilots the entire week. Flying will begin each day at 8:00am and conclude at darkness. All flying will be done from the main runway (5000 ft). Sponsored by Jet Central for 2012 are two "Big Tops" (40X200) next to the main taxiway (600ft). The additional 80ft in each tent will be available as rental space, therefore eleminating the need for smaller tents on the taxiway. Each of these additional spaces will be offered as 10X40 (front to rear) reserved near the front, offering plenty of choices for individual needs. Pilots needing more space can rent as many sections as they need. If the entire 10X40 is not needed, each pilot is free to split the 250.00 cost with anyone willing to share. Pilots who rented space last year, will have first preferance for the 10X40 slots (8 to 10 degrees cooler than smaller tents). Anyone needing tents with sides, will have to rent the usual 40X40 and ect. (not on the taxiway). The remaining 120ft of the "Big Tops" will still be available as free pilot space for pre-registered pilots, with 2011 attendees having their same place. We have plenty of space for all, so those new to the event shouldn't worry. Pop up tents are also welcome, and will be placed perpendicular to the east side Big Top in the grass area. No pop tents will be allowed on the taxiway or inbetween the Big Top Tents and the runway. Vendors Row like last year is perpendicular to the west Big Top (grass area). Thanks to Wren Turbines, we'll have additional free pilot space in the new 40X100 tent located in the grassy area west of the taxiway. Wren has rented five (5) 10X40 spaces. They will use two of the slots, and donate the other three as free pilot space.

Even more prizes, awards, and surprises for our pilots this year! A "Jet Central Surprise", Four JR Radios, Donated Kits and Accessories, money (50-50 drawing), Friday Night Dinner (free to registered pilots), Saturday Night Awards Dinner (again only 10.00 per person), 28 awards, Parade of Lights, Fireworks, T-28 Special, Fighter Jet Showdown, Sport Jet Showdown, Mass Habu Launch,and much more!

Special Thanks to the City of Lebanon, Ky and the Lebanon Tourist & Convention Commission

Air Conditioning at Jets Over Kentucky Week !!!!!!!!

There will be an air conditioned 40X40 tent near the flight line that will be air conditioned. The weather is usually hot, and this will be a welcomed addition to the "Worlds Grandest Jet Event"! The event wil bear the cost of this most important addition, but we are willing to have a sponsor!

Any interested vendor should contact me ASAP!

Any banners, merchandise, or ect. in this area can only be those of the the sponsorer of the "Hospitality Tent". The sponsorer also has reservations for the "Hospitality Tent" each year thereafter.

It will certainly be nice to cool down just before that exciting flight!
