    New info:

    Not only are the Unlimited pilots going to win cash... But we have worked with a sponsor to get models made of every classes winning aircraft!

    https://www.aviatorgear.com is going to supply:
    Unlimited - Full size model of their A/C
    Advanced - Choice of miniature model or briefing stick of their A/C
    Sportsman Miniature model of their A/C
    Primary Briefing Stick of their A/C




    The detail of these models are amazing... Notice the spades and the tie down on the wing.

    Come to the IAC comp at Sebring from April 30th to May 5th and we will have a Softie dealer there with several designs that you can TRY IN YOUR PLANE.

    He is bringing a Softie Mini, Softie Wedge, and Softie Seat.

    All of these rigs are new demos and will be for sale. Also let everyone know that anyone who purchases one of the demos or orders a new parachute at the contest will receive a free carry bag ($45 value), free shipping ($50 value) and 15% off. Currently Softie is running 4 to 6 weeks for new parachutes so just keep that in mind.

    I am trying to make it so these contests are events where companies can bring out their products for people to try.

    Bonehead Composites is also sending us helmets.
    The Pilot X
    Gunner
    And a new pilot helmet just introduced.

    You will be able to try these out as well.
