Practice and registration will be on August 26. We look forward to Primary, Sportsman, Intermediate, Advanced and Unlimited power categories.

The deets:

Contest fee: $100; Hangar $10 per night.


The two best hotels in the area that we have used in the past are full for the entire weekend of our contest. We are recommending that Canadiana Motel in Hanover 519 364-1580 (, and the Lighthouse Motel  in Walkerton 519 881-0202 ( We recommend early reservations as there are some events in the area that may fill up all available hotel rooms. Camping at the airport is allowed, and there are two 25 foot house trailers that sleep four still available. The contest director has reserved one of these trailers and will be on-site for the entire contest.

Apres flying:

There will be a BBQ Friday night at the airport, and there is also a restaurant on the airport property that will be open during all hours of the contest. A banquet will be held Saturday night at the airport. This banquet will also be attended by up to 50 local pilots and airport friends.

‘Import’ details:

Canadian and American border crossing procedures will be explained in future blogs, and briefings will be given by Aerobatics Canada Chapter 3 members attending the IAC contests run by IAC chapters 88, 126, and 34.
