We are the Denver-area chapter of the International Aerobatic Club, a division of the Experimental Aircraft Association. Our members come from all along the Front Range from Ft. Collins to Colorado Springs, as well as from neighboring states. RMAC's goal is safety above all else. We share a love of aerobatic flying, whether for personal enjoyment, the precise demands of competition, or working on the sidelines as judges and support personnel at contests. Our activities fall into three main categories:

  • Competition
  • Recreational flying, including critique and practice days
  • Group meetings and social events

Results of the Ben Lowell Aerial Confrontation

by Doug Lovell

The Ben Lowell Aerial Confrontation flew over the weekend at Lamar, in the high plains of Eastern Colorado.  Judges Betty Stewart, Dick Bevington, and Pat Fogarty braved a judge line littered with prickly pear cactus to grade all of the flights.  Mike Forney was Chief Judge for Primary and Sportsman.  Paul Thomson was Chief Judge for Intermediate and Advanced.  Chris Leach acted as contest director with help from Registrar and Scorekeeper Ron Duren, IAC Chapter 12 members DJ Molny, Betty Stewart, Dan Peters, Marc Connolly, and all present.

Lamar Update

Your contest crew is assembling and we anticipate a good weekend of flying!

If the Friday weather delays your arrival, have no fear -- we will bend over backwards to accommodate late arrivals.

If you're coming to the Ben Lowell Aerial Confrontation, May 23-25 in Lamar CO, you can help us out by pre-registering. This lets us print some of the paperwork ahead of time and get an idea of how many people plan to participate.
