On Oct. 11, the Minden-Tahoe Airport (KMEV) in Nevada, will hold its annual Aviation Roundup. This year will have a few new events, according to organizers. In the morning there will be rocket launches. As Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) dominate a lot of news today across the country, the Aviation Roundup has secured a “Drone Zone.” Roundup attendees will be able to observe UAS flights on an obstacle course and learn more about UAS applications.
Again this year the airport will have a number of aircraft for viewing and rides will be offered for varying fees in aircraft, gliders and helicopters.
Kids of all ages will have the opportunity to paint great pumpkins from the Corley Ranch.
Highlighting this year Aviation Roundup will be a Pumpkin Drop. Each aircraft will need a pilot and bombardier for safety. Aircraft can make a bombing run at 500 feet above the ground and try to hit the target. Pumpkins will be provided. Pilot safety briefing at 11:30 am in the airport office.
The gates will open at 10 am and close at 4 pm. The cost is $10 per car load.
