CONTACT! Magazine’s 8th annual Alternative Engine Round-Up, normally held at the tiny airport in Jean, Nevada, has outgrown its home and is moving to Marysville California, to be held in conjunction with the Golden West Regional Flyin & Airshow, June 10, 11 & 12, 2011 at the Yuba County Airport (MYV). Although the Golden West Fly-in is slated for three days, the Alternative Engine Round-Up will be on Saturday, June 11th only.
In keeping with the tradition that the Round-Up will always be a free event for those who fly in with a display aircraft, anyone who chooses to bring to the event an experimental (homebuilt) aircraft that is powered by an “alternative engine” and puts their plane on display with all the others, admission for them and their passengers will be waved for the day. Preregistration is required to take advantage of this offer and can be done by visiting the CONTACT! Magazine website. www.ContactMagazine.comIn addition to aircraft being on display, the Round-up will include an entire day of educational forums focused on alternative engines, including automobile conversions and propellers. The forums are free and don’t require any preregistration.
