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

FUNDRAISING FOR AMANDA AND KYLE

During the Thunder in the Valley Air Show last weekend in Columbus, Georgia, announcer Hugh Oldham and air boss George Cline used the sponsor appreciation dinner as an opportunity to solicit contributions to the Kyle and Amanda Fund recently established by the ICAS Foundation. The duo’s pitch was low key and had received the approval of air show management.

“It was a pass-the-hat-type of appeal. We explained the challenges that Amanda and Kyle would be facing and asked the folks present at the dinner to contribute what they could,” said Oldham. In the end, the solicitation generated $2,400, every penny of which will go directly to the Franklins to defray some of the medical and logistical expenses they will incur as they both continue to recover from their accident two weeks ago in Brownsville, Texas.

If you missed it, NBC’s Today Show aired a story about Kyle and Amanda on Monday.

And, of course, if you would like to make a donation yourself to the Kyle and Amanda Fund, just click here, then click on “Donate Now” and follow the prompts.

WANTED…Competition Pilots and Air Show Pilots

Jim Baker, one of the pilots in Tommy Edwards' Green Monster last year, is the POC for the Dyess AFB Open House at Abilene Muni Airport in Abilene, TX.  Jim is putting together a "fake" competition for entertainment purposes in conjunction with the Air Show.  Contestants will fly once or twice and will be using the Air Show box before or after the main air show.  If any of you are interested in using this event on April 30th as a fun getaway and pre-season tune-up, then contact Jim Baker directly at (719) 963-3117.  Jim said they'll cover the hotel, transportation to and from the airport, and food.  In addition, you'll get gas for the contest and get "topped off" for your flight home.

In addition, if you have your ACE card, they are looking for Air Show acts to fill out the time slots.  Again, call Jim for details.
