We held our first national jet meet on the weekend of July 20-21, the "Valencia Jet Blast". We had over 20 jet pilots from all over the country with 30 airplanes, 10 of which were turbine powered. The event was nothing short of a great success. We flew over 100 flights without a scratch. Safety, frienship, fun and pilot quality were the highlights of the event.
