Welcome

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

Jay Davis Accident & Fundraiser

Dear Friends -- On Friday Feb. 16, IAC12 member Jay Davis was severely injured when his Thorp T-18 departed the runway on landing and flipped over. He suffered multiple spinal fractures and underwent 10 hours of surgery at Longmont United Hospital to fuse his spine from C5 to T2. His spinal cord was badly damaged and he is now a quadriplegic. Fortunately his cognition is fine and he regained some strength in his arms and hands over the weekend.

So when you are looking for this landmark and cannot find it - there's a reason!
