Hammerhead Roundup

On Behalf of IAC36,

 

Join us for the 2021 Hammerhead Roundup in beautiful Borrego Springs, California! By day, you'll fly in the world's finest aerobatic box—built to CIVA standards, designed to host the world championships, and practically visible from space. By night, you'll trade laughs with some of the world's finest pilots at a relaxing desert resort.

The box is right next to a 5,000-foot runway and the judging line is right next to that. No shuffling to some remote cow patty; all the action happens right at Borrego.

 

LODGING

Call the Borrego Springs Resort at (760) 767-5700 and ask for the "IAC36 Rate". Call early because it sells out! 

If no rooms are available, try Casa Del Zoro at (760) 767-0100. There are also cheap motels in town, a few minutes from the field.

 

TRANSPORTATION

Rental cars, Uber, and Lyft are usually not available. However, the Borrego Springs Resort has a free shuttle you can call on demand. It's a 5-minute ride. Some people will also have cars available. Ground transportation has never been a problem.

 

CATEGORIES

  • All 5 categories
  • Unlimited 4-minute Free (smoke oil and sound system on site.)
