It’s that time of year again… the 7th Annual Touchdown Autorotation Contest will be held Sunday, June 25th at the McMinnville Airport. The event coincides with the Lions Club “All You Can Eat Pancake Breakfast Fly-In/Drive-In.” Breakfast is served from 0700 to noon and the Auto Rotation Contest starts at 1000.
The competition will be judged on straight-in autos. Scoring is based on three factors:
1. distance from the pre-established “spot”
3. slide distance
Pilots can have points subtracted from their total score depending on how much assistance is given by Jerry Trimble. Each pilot is allowed 2 full-down autorotations.
The cost to enter is $75 which includes the helicopter rental and a $5 donation to a local charity of the pilot’s choice.
Schedule of Events:
0700 Pancakes Served
0800 $25 Helicopter Rides Begin
0930 FAA Wings Presentation – JTH Hangar
1000 Touchdown Autorotation Contest
