Precision Aerobatics Model Pilots Association
07/09/2023 to 07/14/2023

For detailed information see the IAC Calendar.

Beautiful, large aircraft perform a prescribed stunt pattern before a panel of judges.  Flights are scored by smoothness and accuracy of maneuvers, with a bonus for aircraft appearance.  There are no design restrictions, but most models typically use .35-.60-size engines, with wingspans reaching more than 5 feet.  Precision Aerobatics is divided into skill classes for beginner, intermediate, advanced, and expert fliers. Two related events are Old-Time Stunt, using pre-1953 Stunt pattern and aircraft designs, and Classic Stunt, using aerobatics and aircraft designs that are more than 25 years old.

Tuesday in CL Precision Aerobatics, there are no official events. But that does not mean there is no action going on. Tuesday is the day that Old-Time Stunt (OTS), Classic, and Nostalgia 30 are flown on the grass circles.

July 14, 2020: CL Precision Aerobatics (Stunt)

By Matt Neumann

On Monday, Control Line Aerobatics (Stunt) started off with processing and appearance judging. It is also a time for everyone to get together and start to catch up on things since we last met. For most of us, that was a year ago at the 2019 Nats. I am always amazed at the diverse backgrounds of our pilots.  We have engineers, salespersons, mechanics in both cars and aircraft, professional pilots, and many more. Yet there is one thing that always brings us together— the love of model aircraft; Control Line aerobatic aircraft to be exact.

July 12, 2020: CL Beginner Stunt

By Mike Stinson

As you all know, this is a very strange year for everyone. No different for Control Line Beginner Stunt, which took place Sunday, July 12. We had more volunteers than contestants for the first time that I can remember. This allowed us to finish before the predicted rain, which never came. The event ran smoothly because of the good help and cooperation of the contestants. I have heard some very good comments about the contestants from the volunteers.
