|As the Felixstowe 2000 Heli show is organised by a ModelFlight
contributor (Rob Sherratt), here are a few extra details on this
The Show is very much a "hands on and get
involved" affair for helicopter and r/c electric airplane pilots.
The Saturday programme is a fun fly-in day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The BMFA have offered free 1-day membership of the BMFA for anyone
wanting to "have a go" for the first time, and Flyin Fish
are making dual-control r/c helicopters available on the Sunday for
anyone booking in advance. Entrance on Saturday is £2.
Sunday 25th June is given over to a public
flying show from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. when BMFA insurance certification and
B license is needed for anyone flying unsupervised. There is an added
family flavour to the show with bouncy castles, steam traction engine
rides and Punch and Judy for the youngsters. Entrance is £2 on the
gate, £1 concessions. There's free admission, camping, BBQ and raffle
prizes for helpers and people who fly on Sunday. All proceeds from the
event go to Orwell High School, Felixstowe.
