Redlands Airport Spring Fling, April 4, 2020
Its springtime and that means it’s time for the Redlands Airport Spring Fling event. The RAA will be serving up a great pancake breakfast in conjunction with EAA Chapter 845’s Young Eagle flights. Breakfast is $7 and will be served from 7:30 – 10:30.
As part of the event we will also having a little flying fun for all. Back by popular demand is the Spring Fling Flour Bombing Contest. This competition really got a few pilots excited last year. We will start the contest at approximately 8:30.
The Flour Bombing Contest is for fixed wing aircraft only. Participants are required to have a 2-man crew, a pilot & bombardier. Each team will make two passes over the runway and will use the official flour bombs to hit the target. The final score is the best of the two passes. The crew that gets the closest to the target wins. Here is a link to the contest rules. All participants must attend the mandatory safety briefing at 8:15 am and sign a release of liability.
The entry fee with breakfast is $20, $15 if you are dieting (why would you do that?). An Aircraft Spruce gift card will be awarded to each of the winning crews. First place, $100, second $50 & third place $25.
If you have any questions about our event contact the RAA via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
