The Southern California Classic 2021

On Behalf of IAC 36 and 49,

Join us for the first-ever Southern California Classic!

Two of California's premiere IAC chapters are teaming up to host THE contest of 2021. 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. You'll even have spectators! We invite the whole town to come watch the contest.
 

PRIZE MONEY!

If you place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in ANY category, you walk away with $350 cash. 

(You're welcome to compete in any category you'd like, but to qualify for the prize money, you must fly at least the same category that you did in your last contest—no Rob Hollands in Sportsman, thank you.)

 

LODGING

Call the Borrego Springs Resort at (760) 767-5700 and ask for the "IAC Pilots 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

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.
