Valdez May Day Fly-In & Airshow - May 7-9, 2010 Fri - Sun

In 2007 Cub Crafters brought their "Carbon Cub". It's a 220 HP super Cub that weighs 250-300 pounds less than any other Cub. The three pictures here show a 19 foot takeoff! They were also able to do a short field landing of 53 feet!

There is always a good crowd, no matter what the weather is. There were approximately 110 airplanes on the ramp. Come on out. Fly or drive, it's worth the trip. It's a good time. If you don't feel like competing in the short take off and landging contest, there are seminars, and a Poker Run.

The rules for the competition are published on our website at www.valdezalaska.org in the events folder.

We expect the top planes and pilots from the Northwest to be attending and competing at this years event and the demonstration of piloting and performance of bush planes will be unmatched anywhere in the United States.

  • Our DVD is on the www.supercub.org web store with a banner on the web page
  •    <li>The DVD "Big Rocks and Long Props"  available at <a href="http://www.nlavionics.com/">Northern Lights Avionics</a> and <a href="http://supercub.org/">Supercub.org</a> features a chapter with our Fly In</li>
