Havasu Jets took over Hawks Airfield today, with more expected Sunday.

The jets, mostly computer controlled with ECU turbine engines burning jet fuel, can fly at 200 mph or faster. Club rules limit the speed to 200 mph for safety purposes.

Most of the jets are “epic victory jets,” however, according to contest organizer Jim Drew, there are a few turbo jet props and jet-powered gliders flying around as well.

All pilots must be an AMA blue-card members.
