Florida Jets takes place at Paradise Field on the Lakeland Airport grounds
March each year.
With over 150 pilots, this event features a large collection of turbine jets. This
year, the jets took off from the new 700 foot long by 50 foot wide blacktop runway which includes a Bahia
Grass runway adjacent to the hard surface .
Florida Jets is a “Jet Together”, not a competition. It is
a family event with a international group of pilots and vendors brought together
to sunshine Florida. Here are a collection of the
jets captured by our crew, highlighting some of the biggest and fastest RC Jets
in the world.
Eclipse 400 by Air-C-Race flies in a far more conventional manner than what you might expect, with a V-tail! Designed with a V-tail (sometimes called a Butterfly tail or spelled Vee-tail) is an unconventional arrangement of the tail control surfaces that replaces the traditional fin and horizontal surfaces with two surfaces set in a V-shaped configuration when viewed from the front or rear of the aircraft. The rear of each surface is hinged, and these movable sections, sometimes called ruddervators, combine the tasks of the elevators and rudder.
