SECOND ANNUAL APRIL 1, 2017
R/SEA HAWKS PARK 1030 NW 28th St,
The 2017 (2nd Annual) Cape Elec Fun Fly (C.E.F.F.) is in the books as a huge success (probably an understatement). This is not because of us but because of all the volunteers who helped on the flight line, in the pits, on the grill and behind the camera (some photos above), plus the support of the board and officers.
Almost every time we checked we had 4 flying and a couple more in line. The T28 Gaggle was fun but the Combat Event seemed to excite the crowd the most. How we can have 7 airplanes in the air in close proximity and not hit a one is amazing – and appreciated. At the 2016 event we had 35 pilots. This year’s total was 47 — that’s an increase of 35%.
The weather was a big plus with a gentle wind almost down the runway – which certainly helped everyone have a ball. Special thanks must go to Mick, the owner of Paradise Hobbies for his support with the gift card for the registered pilots’ drawing and the addition of their banner to our flight line.
Our next planned event will be a duplicate of last year’s Military/Veteran’s day fun fly on November 11 (the actual Veteran’s Day). In closing, many thanks to all for the great showing and the enthusiastic energy put into the event.
