We held another Roar ‘n Soar event again this year. I flew four different airplanes each day and talked to the crowds about each one after landing. There are many things going on at the event like; R/C planes, boat races on the lake, BMX jumping, hang gliding, a car show, music, and lots of fun things for the kids to do.
One fun thing I got to do for me was to race a Hydroplane around the course one morning. It does about 100 mph on the straightaways! What a rush!
Another cool thing I got to do was demonstrate a Hovercraft I’ve had for many years.
When I moved out of my Miami shop to Central Florida I rented it to the people that built them. After visiting from time to time, I decided I had to have one. It is equally as comfortable on water as it is on land and I routinely go from the runway into the retention ponds and back. One of the fun things you can do with it is go down the runway at full speed, turn the control hard over, and do spins down the runway!
