The 2015 Spring Opener Aerobatic Contest has been set for Saturday May 9th. This is a one day contest flying Primary and Sportsman only. Competitors in higher classes will have handicap points deducted from their scores to level the results. The contest is hosted at an almost perfect contest airport located just north of Wichita Kansas. Newton (KEWK) city airport offers a large ramp, both north/south and east/west runways and some of the flattest terrain known to man. Section lines and roads run straight to the horizon and parallel to the box. Our box is one of the best marked in the country to compete in. Kansas enjoys some of the mildest climate in the world. Hangar space will be provided for contestants at no additional charge. You can also use this contest as your tune up for the start of the contest year or just a great time to demo your superior piloting skills. Flight medals and trophies will be awarded for every category. Come and enjoy the hospitality of the folks in the heartland!
