Due to extreme weather conditions on June 26, IAC Chapter 88 was forced to move the National Aerobatics Day celebration to July 3, which turned out to be a very successful day with sunshine and many aerobatic and non-aerobatic airplanes onsite as well as a great number of pilots and non-pilots attending at Romeo State Airport, where the chapter has a permanent Aerobatic Practice Area over the airport.

Unfortunately, due to change in date, some pilots were unable, for many different reasons, to attend. Don Forton for example, who flies his acro mount out of his private strip, still had the runway covered with inches of water from the heavy rainfall a week before.

Aerobatic promotion material and membership sign-up forms were made available. Following a picture taking session, the chapter continued with aerobatic demonstration flights. Copies of the sequences each pilot flew were distributed amongst the group with chapter members explaining and commending the figures flown. Jason Ledbetter flew the Sportsman Known in his Bücker Jungmann, Wayne Buescher flew the Intermediate Known in his Staudacher F600 and Hugo flew the Unlimited Known in his Staudacher Pitts S-1E.

At the conclusion of the flight demonstration part of the celebration, a door prize drawing was held that included IAC promotional items donated by Hugo. We also would like to thank Gino and Jim for their generous donations.

The chapter would like to thank everyone for joining the National Aerobatics Day celebration. A special thank you to the volunteers making this special day a success.
