Event Description

Jets Over Kentucky Week will offer even more excitement for 2013.  Uninterrupted flying for our pilots the entire week.  Flying will begin each day at 8:00am and conclude at darkness.  All flying will be done from the main runway (5000 ft).  Sponsored by Jet Central for 2013 are two "Big Tops" (40X200) next to the main taxiway (600ft).  The additional 80ft in each tent will be available as rental space, therefore eleminating the need for smaller tents on the taxiway.  Also for 2013 will be a 40X200 Big Top parallel to the runway in the grass area.  This Big Top will give pilots a clear unobstructed view of all flying.  A transport vehicle will be located at this tent for moving aircraft to the flight line.  Each of these additional spaces will be offered as 10X40 (front to rear) reserved near the front, offering plenty of choices for individual needs.  Pilots needing more space can rent as many sections as they need.  If the entire 10X40 is not needed, each pilot is free to split the 250.00 cost with anyone willing to share.  Pilots who rented space last year, will have first preferance for the 10X40 slots (8 to 10 degrees cooler than smaller tents).  Anyone needing tents with sides, will have to rent the usual 40X40  and ect. (not on the taxiway).  The remaining 120ft of the "Big Tops" will still be available as free pilot space for pre-registered pilots, with 2012 attendees having their same place.   We have plenty of space for all, so those new to the event shouldn't worry.  Pop up tents are also welcome, and will be placed perpendicular to the east side Big Top in the grass area.  No pop tents will be allowed on the taxiway or in between the Big Top Tents and the runway.  Vendors Row like last year is perpendicular to the west Big Top (grass area).  We'll have additional pilot space in the new 40X200 tent located in the grassy area west of the taxiway.  10 slots in this tents will be premium rental space, and the remaining will be free pilot space.  Pilots with free space will not have the entire slot to themselves.  Depending on the number of aircraft, two or three pilots will share these accomodations.  Pilots in all rental slots may choose to divide their slots with friends, or remain private.   
Even more prizes, awards, and surprises for our pilots this year!  A "Jet Central Surprise", Four JR Radios, Donated Kits and Accessories, money (50-50 drawing), Friday Night Dinner (free to registered pilots), Saturday Night Awards Dinner (again only 10.00 per person), 28 awards, Parade of Lights, Fireworks, T-28 Special, Fighter Jet Showdown, Sport Jet Showdown, Mass Habu Launch,and much more!

We have secured three golf carts from Campbellsville, KY for rental to our pilots.  The company has given us a rate of 35.00 per day.  We have two left, and they will go to the next two inquiries.  They will be delivered Monday, and the rental is from Monday - Saturday.
