By From page A3 | October 04, 2012

Woodland-Davis Aeromodelers’ scale helicopter event takes off Friday through Sunday at the group’s field on County Road 29, 1.3 miles east of County Road 102 northeast of Davis.

This three-day event features world-class scale helicopters and pilots. There will be helicopter demonstrations for rescue, firefighting, military action and large 1/4-scale helicopter turbines. Full-size helicopters also will be onsite.

Flying starts at 9:15 a.m. and continues until 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and from 9  a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. At 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, guests will enjoy an aerobatics show featuring lights and music. On Saturday, a full-size Vietnam-era Huey helicopter will fly in at 10 a.m., followed by a skydiver jumping at 11 a.m. from a full-size Bell Jet Ranger helicopter.

Due to road construction on Road 102, there will be signs posted that the road is closed to through traffic. However, show visitors may go around the barricades to reach Road 29 to get to the flying site. For a map and current information, visit www.wdarc.org.

This event is a fundraiser to benefit Autism Speaks (www.autismspeaks.org). Food and drinks will be available at the event. For more information, visit www.helicopters-scale-masters.com or www.wdarc.org.
