Scale Squadron Fly-In 2011

My other home town flying field the Pomona Valley Model Airplane Club just had their Scale Squadron Fly-in, and unfortunately I was out of town covering XFC so I was not able to be at this great event.  But here is the club write up on it and some images courtesy of PVMAC web site.  To check out all the images and see the list of winners, visit their site at:


The Scale Squadron Fly-In 2011 is behind us and all that can be said is Wow. This year’s turnout was strong with 68 registered pilots, and almost 550 spectators, throughout the weekend. This was in-spite of the poor weather that was forecasted. New for this year, was a seminar put on by the Scale squadron with guest speakers Larry Wright & Gordon Trough, talking about the basics of Scale Masters and how to get started.  This year’s lunches menu was one area of improvement, as they were able swap out the usual hot dogs and “Hockey Pucks” for some Philly Cheese Steaks. The Zap Tap room was also improved this year, thanks in part to the Catering which was done by Zendejas Mexican food.  Randy Wilbur, the CD for this event, says that everything went really smooth with no snags.   Thanks to all the numerous volunteers from Both the Scale Squadron and The PVMAC who helped make this event possible.
