The SKSS proudly presents our 2nd Scale Aero Tow. This follows up our hugely successful event last year. We’ll have electric tugs that have demonstrated their ability to tow 15+lb sailplanes. If you don’t have a scale sailplane, bring any sailplane with a tow release. A winch will be available during non-tow periods. We have a large, mowed field, for gentle take-offs and landings.

There are several hotels in the Newark area if you’re staying over the weekend. Hotel #1 is the closest to the field. All are within a few minutes drive.

If you want to bring the family, there are several local attractions:

What to do in Delaware
Longwood Gardens
Winterthur
Beaches
Tax Free Shopping

We fly within the State Park system so there is an entrance fee: $3/day for Delaware registered vehicles and $6/day for non-Delaware registered vehicles.

A really nice video for inspiration (thanks, Alex!).
