Fall Fun Fly
October 2 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us for the Fall Fun Fly!
Event #1: Las Vegas Shuffle. Time starts, the pilot rolls the dice (two), starts his plane, takes off and does the number of loops that appeared on the dice, then lands. The pilot must then roll the same number again that was rolled originally to stop the clock. Fastest time wins. 10 points deducted per second from 2400 points. 200 points deducted per maneuver not performed and / or if plane misses the runway. 100 points deducted if plane does not stay on runway. The pilot needs an assistant to hold the plane.
Event #2: Timed Flight and Event #3: Dead Stick Spot Landing. These are two different scored events flown in one flight. The pilot will draw a slip of paper with 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, or 120 on it. The pilot will take off and attempt to fly the number of seconds that appeared on the slip. Time starts at liftoff, and time stops when pilot says “now”. 30 points deducted from 2400 per second under or over the number drawn. The pilot can kill his engine anywhere except on final approach and glide to a landing, with the goal being to bring the aircraft to a stop within the circle. 10 points deducted from 2400 per foot from the spot to the nearest part of the aircraft. 500 points deducted if the plane misses the runway or runs off the runway at any point except the end. If the pilot uses the throttle after he calls “now” the score is zero.
