    AirVentures STOL 2018

    AirVentures STOL 2018
    Hi Everyone!

    It's time to gather STOL pilots for AirVentures 2018! Have you done competitions or
    flown STOL in the backcountry? Would you like the opportunity to fly at AirVentures? If so please
    go to http://www.alarmspro.com/AirVentures_STOL_2018/ read the information sheet and fill out the
    STOL registration form. The goal is to safely share a once in a life time experience while
    showcasing different STOL aircraft with a style of flying that many people are unaware.


    Registration will close March 15, 2018 with the competitor list available March 25TH 2018.

    Thank you,

    Kris and Frank Knapp

    EAA is trying to get as many new faces and machines as possible.. It's an experience to fly with some of the
    real life STOL characters and be part of the Worlds greatest Air Show! If your interested please take a second
    and fill out the registration.. insurance can come later.

    Last call..

    I do wish I could dedicate the time to go this year. My plan is to go for 2019, maybe hold a spot for me then? While I am a beginner without much hope of showing true stol with chubby Mauly, maybe I will register as Steve Eaton or Eddie Doyal (jr).

    I just hope I can make Anchorage this year
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    All it takes is a pocket knife. Just like ripping a bandaid off.

    NAA, You'd be fine. EAA runs this show after sunset so no one can really see the planes

    Man, good question. I got lucky once at a STOL deal. Hard to look very good when going against a bunch of carbon cubs. Even the 180s are cub short. Not sure I want to press my luck!....Momma usually makes me pick a trip. Utah looks pretty nice in the fall

    I would be entering as 'ugly duckling', but pick your trip to Alaska, via Utah and Oshkosh for fuel. Great Circle Course.

    Look for the airfield in Jenks OK with the tree at the end and in the way. Old rickety barn beside, white cub with red stripes and coyotes on the boot cowl...

    Thats the place!

    I'm not an insider and I've heard of about half of these guys. They should have a red carpet event for such celebrities:
    "Joe, Joe....who are you wearing?"

    "Alaska Bush Wheels."

    As long as they don't get a look at the pilot the small children in the crowd should be fine. They would most certainly survive seeing the plane. Now seeing Steve on the other hand . . . . .
