Adelaide Model Aerosport played host to this year's Jets over Monarto 3-day event. Blessed with some great late winter weather, over 30 pilots with in excess of 50 RC jets attended. Models ranged from small EDF models to the super impressive 3-metre Leonardo turbine model of Theo Arvanitakis. Pilots came from Alice Springs, Mildura, Melbourne and various SA-based clubs, and a lot of interested RC modellers came from Adelaide to check out the action.

A big thank you to the AMA Club, and the organisers, Greg Leigh and David Wearing-Smith.

The Annual Jerilderie competition was held over the June long weekend. This year, three classes were flown. F5J, Open Thermal (winch launch) and F5L (2m Electric RES). There were 38 competitors representing most Australian states, with 4 from New Zealand. 37 flew in 5J, with 27 in each of OT and 5L.

The Model Flight Midway Cup & Victorian F5J State Championships were held at the new Jess Field 15 km east of Horsham over the 6th - 7th of May. Brad and Mike headed across to represent SA. Cool mornings, freshening winds and the odd light shower aren’t normally associated with a nice weekend of flying, but it made for challenging conditions.
