Mojave Tonight & Tomorrow!

Experimental aircraft and their builders are what the Mojave Experimental Fly-In is all about, and it's starting today.

Tonight the family-oriented indoor Build & Fly model aircraft event starts things off; tomorrow is the main fly-in on the Mojave ramp. A new twist this year is the awards banquet has been moved from its traditional Saturday night to a luncheon immediately after judging on Saturday afternoon. This allows everyone to conveniently meet and congratulate this year's most celebrated experimenters--a great idea.

Arrive early Saturday to avoid the mad gaggle of mid-morning arrivals. The restaurant is open for breakfast on the field so it's better to make the dawn patrol than shoot the rapids when the show opens.
