Los Banos Scale Aerotow - 26th Year!

Hi All,
Dates for this year's Los Banos Scale Aerotow are Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28, 2019.
The usual group will amass on Wednesday to enjoy the great air that always seems to precede the event and the scale-obsessed will start showing up Thursday and Friday. We will be out the morning of Friday, the 26th to set up.
We will also need help on Saturday morning from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM with Registration , T-shirt sales and possibly the raffle and lunch prep and service from about 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
If you are planning to attend and fly please complete the online application at so we can get a headcount.
Any comments, questions or suggestions are always welcome. Just post here or email at [email protected],net.

April 28 Los Banos


Most of the flying is on Friday and Saturday. Anyone who competes in the Sunday TD contest can still have 2 days of scale soaring and go home Saturday afternoon.
