Davis, CA Event Runs Three Days To Raise Funds
California's Woodland Davis Aeromodelers will host an event
called "The International Helicopter Scale Masters - Fly for the
Cure for Autism" over three days, Friday through Sunday, September
23-25 on County Road 29 north of Davis. The event will have many of
the features of a full-scale helicopter airshow.
The event starts with a pilots meeting each morning at 0900,
wraps up Friday and Saturday with a 3D light show and music
starting at 2000, and closes at 1600 on Sunday. The night flying
will include lighted, highly aerobatic R/C helicopters.
Organizers tell the Davis Enterprise R/C model helicopter pilots
and aircraft will come from as far away as Chile, Germany, Hawaii
and Florida, and will be joined by full-size helicopters and pilots
from the local area.
Organizers add, "This area’s first-of-its-kind fundraising
event on behalf of autism awareness combines highly detailed
radio-control model helicopters with support from their full-size
brothers in the skies near Davis." Scenarios will include rescue,
water-drop firefighting, law enforcement and military
demonstrations, and flights of turbine-powered scale jet aircraft
representing the Korean War era to present.
