  • 2018 Sky High Aero Tow - Muncy, PA - September 14-16

    LET'S GO SKY HIGH -- SEPTEMBER 14-16, 2018

    ScaleSoaring.com and our Host/Owner of the flying field Mark Eisele will be hosting another giant scale aerotow extravaganza at the Sky High Airfield in Central Pennsylvania. After a successful return last year, the scale soaring group is heading back to this spectacular location nestled in the hills of Muncy, PA.

    We will fly Thursday afternoon the 13th once we're certain field and flight-line set-up is completed. This is no longer a club field, so all arraignments are on us. The event is a team effort of everyone attending lending a hand to make it work. And, we've proven it does!

    Come out and join the fun. New pilots are encouraged to attend and enjoy this relaxing weekend. Multiple tow planes capable of towing sailplanes up to 10-meter wing spans. E-sailplanes welcome. Fly until dark each day!

    Camping and trailer overnight on-site, no hookups. Abundant hotels, restaurants and shopping can be found in nearby Williamsport.


    Lunch will be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday for just $5. Event is $20 per day, $50 for the entire weekend. AMA or MAAC is required to fly. This is an AMA-sanctioned event #18/1700. All proceeds and donations from the weekend go to the Sky High field fund.

    DIRECTIONS: Muncy Exchange Road to County Line Road to High Acre Lane 41°09'04.0"N 76°40'37.7"W PLEASE drive very sloooowly on High Acre Lane past the farmhouse at the entry.

    Team JR Air ............You can't buy happiness. But, you can buy a sailplane and that's pretty darn close.

          Hi Pete. My notes say 1247'. Jim would remind you that's a whopping 223 feet less than Highpoint! ;-)

        Site and set-up details in photo below. Mark is excited to welcome us again!

        For everyone arriving, please be certain to drive very slowly past the first farm (white house on your right) on High Acre Lane.

        We will likely again have access to the large barn behind the flight line for plane storage -- tow planes having first dibs. Plenty of space for campers, RV's on the left of the entry road next to the flying field and tents up top for those wishing to make it an overnight. No hookups.

          Steve P, does the airfield at the Muncy event have a GeoTex surface? If yes, how do you like it? Thanks in advance for your reply. MarkY

            Hi Mark. It does. Left over from the club. It can take footprints if not walked upon gently. Got some tares from prop strikes. We avoid it for our events. Overall, not too impressed, but it is cheaper than asphalt (you get what you pay for) and probably ideal for small electrics and such that can't take off from grass.
