East Coast Aerobatic Contest

September 8-10th

Thursday September 7th – practice for IAC chapter 11 members only (join our chapter)

Friday September 8th all day  – Registration and Open practice for competitors

Saturday – 8AM briefing. Knowns and Frees

Sunday – Unknowns. Note the box will be closed from 11-12 on Sunday. We will be done flying by mid afternoon so everyone has a chance to get home.

First Time Competitors: Our contest is a GREAT first contest. If you are on the fence about flying a contest, come fly ours! We are super friendly and will make sure you know exactly what you need to do. We really pride ourselves on being welcoming and will make sure your first contest is an awesome experience.


The Contest box (IAC 11 members, note that the contest box is NOT the same as the practice box–do not fly this box except during the contest–the box is shifted south by half a box to a full box length for general practice. The area under the north section of the box is very noise sensitive):KHWYbox


Food: Friday- snacks (cookies and veggies/fruit) all day, Friday Dinner (pizza), Sat lunch (sandwiches) and dinner (BBQ), and Sunday Lunch will be provided. This is for competitors and volunteers only. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.

Hotels: Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn and Nuevo Inn and Suites in Warrenton VA (about a 20 min drive from the airport) all have airport rates

Rental Car: In the past, the airport FBO was able to work with Hertz to get cars to the airport, but unfortunately Hertz will no longer work with the FBO, so you will have to call the rental car company directly (hopefully they are still willing to deliver to the airport-we are trying to confirm this).

Hertz Manassas (703) 330-5638

Enterprise Warrenton (540) 341-2727

Hangar Space: We can not promise hangar space at the contest. We will try to find hangars to borrow but it is not guaranteed. Plan on your plane being out.
