Giles Henderson Memorial Challenge

You’re invited to join IAC Chapter 61 for the 2022 Giles Henderson Memorial Challenge (formerly known as the Salem Illinois Regional Aerobatic Contest). The event will be held at the Salem Leckrone airport (SLO) and will include Primary through Unlimited power categories.

Please send a pdf of your Free forms A, B, and C (individual files) to the chapter (iacchapter61 [at] gmail.com) by 1 June 2022.  We will make all the required copies, so you don’t have to worry about that!

Plan to bring a check, credit card, PayPal, or Venmo account to the contest as we would prefer not to work with cash.

If you don’t have a Twitter account, please get one (free) and follow our chapter (@IChapter61) as that is how we will be providing real-time contest info (order of flight, score results, volunteer assignments, news updates, etc.) to reduce person-to-person contact and gathering around paper taped to walls/windows.

Tech Inspections and Practice will be held on Friday 3 June, starting at 10:00. The contest will begin with a 7:30 briefing on Saturday, 4 June and conclude by noon on Sunday 5 June. 

The banquet will be held at the Elk’s Lodge in Salem.
