First day is over
Amazing Saturday ending

First day of Helifest was over at 5PM officially this afternoon, but many pilots remained there to fly or to chat. The weather wasn't that bad as we expected, fortunately more serious rain was missed out. Few showers made the day less enjoyable, and gusty winds caused some inconvenient moments.

Other events and programs

First time ever in UK, Align T-Rex 600XN was in the air. The start wasn't that amazing, becuase the guys were fighting a carburetion problem.

There were many beautiful demos, like tandem flights and group flights. Align's dominance is unrevokably over. There were at least twice more Goblin helicopters, than Aligns, and some other brands were also represented, like: XL Power
