Tyler performs a knife edge spin with smoke. Cool!
Larry Roper (front) preps the Boomerang Turbinator for the demo. Unfortunately he had a mechanical issue preventing his flight. That's why we have back up plans.

Fremont Flyers, NH AMA 1733 provided more static aircraft outside the hangar and a simulator station inside. A very popular spot for exhibitors and visitors alike.
At the Flight Demo Static area there were several SIGs (Special Interest Groups represented: Turbine jets, IMAC Scale Aerobatics and Drones. Lots of good discussion with spectators and exhibitors.
Cody engages with a couple of enthusiastic visitors. The way all our volunteers pay it forward and give back to the hobby is humbling and so beneficial to this kind of outreach.
Jeff Lynds (in hat) loves talking about and educating the crowd about his jets. He is a great example of "getting" the importance of promotion and spreading the good news.
D1 AVP MA Steven Goler takes shift at the Fremont Flyers Sim station. Tyler looks on and Cody sets up to show and tell about FPV flight using a tiny "Swoosh" quad.
"Girl Power" was alive and well at the sim station.
The CAP officers gave the sim a try and realized this model flying isn't as easy as the guys out at the flight line made it look!
The sim station (our second year) well manned by Fremont Flyers. L-R A budding new pilot, Fremont VP Ray Racine, Pres. Daren Hudson, Treasurer Andy Fagen and new member Ron Lessard.
We all start somewhere. Throw it, pick it up and throw it again.
