    Were happy to announce the pilot list for this year’s Tucson Aerobatic Shootout. This will be the 11th T.A.S. and it is being held at the Tucson International ModelplexPark Association on Oct 14th thru the 18th 2015. It’s always been our goal to invite the top pilots from around the world to compete so this year we assembled a committee and reviewed results from previous contests as well as personal knowledge of a pilots capabilities. This should turn out to be very competitive TAS.

    In past years we have held a freestyle contest flown on Saturday and Sunday. To fly in freestyle you also had to compete in the IMAC portion of the event. This year we have decided to separate the two events and have freestyle rounds on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday ( five rounds total )! This opened up the opportunity to invite pilots that specialize in freestyle flight.

    Top pilots selected from around the world will be competing. Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, and the USA will all be represented.

    The event is open to the public and we would like to invite everyone to come watch the best Precision and Freestyle pilots in the world compete for cash, prizes, and the title of “Tucson Aerobatic Champion”. There will be food vendors on site as well as industry vendors. If you would like to support the event as a sponsor, please contact Desert Aircraft.

    See you in October!
