I'm planning to be at the airport Friday and Saturday for the competition. Any RV'sxwho are interested in flying in for either or both days are welcome. I may take the grill over again if enough people say they are coming. Otherwise we could make a lunch run (I have plenty of ground transport available).

We will also be showing off the latest RV-10 which will be ready for inspection by then (waiting for a DAR - Vic, you interested in coming ).

Please email me or post here if you are planning on coming.

I will plan on coming up mid-morning Saturday.
Any special procedures on flying in under the box?

Nope. Just don't overfly the field. Call 5-10 miles out and if someone is in the box they will let you know. Feel free to come up to the ITEC hangar.

The box for Unlimited flights goes down to 328' AGL, so there is no flying in under the box. Never fly through the lateral boundaries of the box, and give it at least a 3/4 mile buffer. Do as Jesse suggests. You may be flying right traffic for one runway depending on the setup. They will advise on the CTAF. Wish Dunnellon wasn't a 4 hour flight in the Pitts for me. Hope everyone has a good time. Fly good, don't suck!

Oh, and read the NOTAM before flying in! Yep, good luck to the new competitors, but more important than the flying itself, have fun, enjoy the camaraderie, try to learn as much as you can from everyone. The competition is with yourself, not the other pilots.

FYI - here's the location of the box at X35. Landing traffic will be on the SE side of RWY 5/23.

Default Saint Aviation - RV Home away from Home

My and a few other RVs found overnight accommodations at Jesse's place (Saint Aviation). This is my first Contest and I'm having a blast. The entire Marion County Airport Team is great and the Contest organizers are doing a fantastic job. If you are close, you really should fly-in just to see all the airplanes. And, the new RV-10 that Jesse is helping finish is really cool! Checking out that airplane coming together for inspection on Monday is an added treat.

This is a panorama of Jesse's hangar after everybody got put to bed tonight.

Sorry I couldn't make it out due to incoming wx.

Did many flights go on before it arrived?

They got 2 or 3 flights in before. Then it cleared out around 2:15 and they've been flying all afternoon.
