KRCM Warbirds 2018 info
« on: May 23, 2018, 02:07:04 PM »
Good Day all

This year’s KRCM Warbirds Gathering will be held on Sunday 16 Sept from 1000 hrs to 1400 hrs.

The intent for this day is to have a lot of fun, fly warbirds and enjoy a good deal of bashing from the peanut gallery.

All types and era of military airplanes are welcome, for static display or for flying.  The definition of a warbird for this event is:  A Scale or a sport scale representation of a plane that was used by the military for training or for operations from before WW1 to present, including military trainers.  The J-3 Cub will be accepted in yellow (they were used as trainers).  However the foamies Supercub and Fun Cub, or a trainer / stick plane with army markings do not count as warbirds.

There will be an attempt at mass take off at 1300 hrs.  The aim of this event is to do a mass flyby, no aerobatics, just circuit flying while attempting to fill the sky with warbirds. 

The challenge for this year is parachute drop,  you will try to drop  a parachute figurine or cargo by parachute on a dedicated drop zone

As Usual, There are no registration or landing fees and the Canteen will be available for lunch and other munchies as available

The process for the  door prizes ticket is based on the honor system and is simple, you are responsible to fill the ticket and place it in the pot upon registration and after each flight.

The more you fly your warbirds the more you get your name in the Pot for the prize Draw

We are always looking for volunteer, if you are interested, just let me know

The Staff for the event will wear bright yellow T-shirts.  They have the last word…

Each pilot has the option of having a spotter. The aim of the spotter is to track his pilot airplane and to ensure safety calls are made.

Use only the 5 positions on the inside stations.  Outside stations will not used. 

Do not stand and fly in between flying stations.

There will be no use of North/South runway.
               
Limit of number of Flying Aircraft - Only 5 Aircraft in the air
            
Need a mandatory spotter only if you are doing dogfight.

No 3D stuff or Helicopter or drone hovering over the Runway.

Mandatory Standard calls apply at all times (“taking off”, “landing”, “deadstick”,” On the field”,”backtracking”).

Full scale airplane have priority, anyone spotting a real airplane must advise the flight line loudly of the position of the real airplane.

MASS TAKE OFF INFO


This event is for all warbirds

The aim of this event is to do a mass flyby, no aerobatics, just circuit flying while attempting formation


Event Coordinator briefing at 1245 Hrs

Take off will be at 1300 hrs


Take off procedures, It will be in succession, this means one after another with a couple of seconds in between. 

Circuit will be done following and identified “Lead” and will be done one behind the other, maximum of 2 in line abreast at all time.

Landing procedures: landing will be done individually, pilots are required to land long and exit the runway on their own power passed the flight line. No recovery of airplane on the field will be done until the end of the event.

Risks:

The risk for accident is relatively higher than normal flight, therefore:

If you don’t feel up to it, stay on the ground, nobody will judge you

Any low pass over the field must be no closer to the pilot stations than the centerline of the runway

Calls Definitions:

Inside mean close to the flight line,
Outside mean close to the wood line
On final mean you are committed to landing
Backtracking mean you are taxing back in front of the pilot station

Each pilot has the option of having a spotter. The aim of the spotter is to track his pilot airplane and to ensure safety calls are made.

It is the responsibility of the follower not to collide with the lead.  Any avoidance maneuvers must be done “away” from the Flight line.
