    I really like the idea of the helicopter drop to increase attendance. Imagine people bringing things like cars, pumpkins/watermelons, small barnyard animals(ok joking on the animal thing) to drop from a hovering helicopter a 1000 feet in the air and watching it blow to pieces on impact!!!

    Here is an alternative:

    If we start building now we will have it finished by Plane Fune 2015.

    This is just food for thought folks but we certainly need a draw for our event.

    Here’s another..I know crazy but perhaps we should think out of the box once in a while to jazz up the event and still promote Aviation!!

    There will be a mandatory safety briefing on Saturday morning to discuss everything from operations to safety.  Thanks in advance and I will pass along the time as the schedule gets firmed up!  We are aiming at 0830.
