Valley of the Giants 2017 at Westport NY Information



Safety: There will be a pilot’s meeting at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Pilots are expected to adhere to the IMAA Safety Code without exception. By their participation, pilots– and not the event sponsors–accept full responsibility for ensuring the airworthiness of their own models and operation of their aircraft, whether on the ground or airborne.
