Time for “The Big One”, at MCRCC, on the Gulf Coast in Gulfport, MS MCRCC will be hosting our 16th annual Fall Fly In on Friday October 18th and Saturday October 19th, 2013. We are the centrally located Gulf Coast Flying Club. You can travel in on Thursday October 17th, and stay in your RV on site through Sunday October 20th. If you are staying overnight, at our site, you will need to be a self contained unit. We will have some of our club members staying overnight. And the access road, to the field, has a gate that will be locked at night. There is also PLENTY of RV parking less than 1/8th of mile from our field. It is located at the Harrison County Fairgrounds. They have power and water hook ups, and the cost is $20.00 per night. We have a 200' x 400' grass runway, 18 pit stalls with power at each one (and they are big enough for more than one person each), 04 starting stations, and 05 pilot stands. We even have a private, air conditioned and heated bathroom, for the ladies. You must hold an AMA membership to fly. We welcome every kind of aircraft: Big Birds, Warbirds, Civilian, Aerobatic, 3-D, Electric, Gas, Glow, Helis', Foamy, Quad...whatever you have...come show it and let's see it fly! We have seen planes as big as 42%. AND, YES we allow Gas Turbines. So bring your jets, you will need to provide your own fire extinguisher for gas turbines. Night flying through Saturday night is perfectly ok…some of our own members will do some night flying Friday night. Gates open at 8:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday There will be a onetime landing fee of $10, good for both days. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., both days. Registered pilots will receive give aways. There will be a 50/50 raffle There will be a raffle for a Seagull Edge 540, 1.20 size! There will be food available, on site, more about that a little later. Several sponsors have signed on.
