Florida Jets – March 5 – 8, 2014Florida Jets is one of the most exciting R/C Aviation events on the planet. FJ features the ultimate technology in airframe construction and power plant, and has the highest level of pilot proficiency of any radio control model aviation discipline. The overall performance and speed of R/C Jets is exceptional. Many of today’s R/C Jets approach ten feet in length, while some are even larger. R/C Jets, like most technology, have evolved from much less complicated and less dependable models, to state of the art composite aircraft, turbine power plants and EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) for power.
FJ is not a competition in the truest sense of the word. FJ is a fly-In, or Jet-Together, as some like to call it. There is continuous flying all day. R/C pilots from around the globe come to visit Lakeland, Florida each spring to fly, and see what the latest in model aviation technology has to offer. Although not a competition, Florida Jet’s Sponsors do hand out several awards for excellence, and the pilots truly revere these awards each year.
All FTE events are open to the public, and there is much to do and see. Admission is only $10 for adults and children under 10 are free. Bring your lawn chair, or take advantage of one of a thousand complimentary chairs, and make a day of it. You won’t be disappointed!
All events are held at Paradise Field at the Lakeland Airport. Enter from the West Pipkin Road just west of the GEICO bldg. & the Sun’n Fun entrance.
