Just an FYI, Strong Enterprises Parachutes don't have the 20 yr limit like most other manufacturers.

Yes, I'd be interested. Would like to see more of the curriculum as it gets fleshed out, and understand how prior aerobatic experience would be applied. Have chutes, and a CG-limited RV-4 with rear controls consisting of a stick only.

Smokey.

I think this is a great idea and a means to improve skill and safety. The formation clinic style approach would make the aerobatic clinics a big hit too. I will spread the word.

All the best,

Ripper is all IN !
Making this setting similar to how formation clinics are organized would be great in learning and popularity. This is also a place to start for those interested in learning formation aerobatics, learn the basics first, practice,practice , practice, then eventually 2 ship and more! Have a chute also.

Default Big news at the IAV/RV Working Group

Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce that IAC President Mike Heuer and IAC Vice President Doug McConnell joined the IAC/RV Working Group this past week. This shows the level of interest that the IAC has in the effort to bring more RV pilots into IAC competition.

According to Mike's post to the group: "We have now finalized the Sportsman through Unlimited Known sequences in both Power and Glider and those will be officially announced on the IAC website this coming week (www.iac.org). However, our Known sequence committee is still working on the Primary sequence.

The one we had last year was deemed by some members as being too simple and hardly worth the expense of coming to an aerobatic contest and then just flying a handful of figures. We wanted something more challenging -- but not so difficult as to be a problem for new entries in competition or the aircraft we want to attract to the category and to competition in general.

When we have the final proposal, I will run it past you guy to see what you think from an RV standpoint."

That's a clear invitation to RV pilots to chime in and voice your opinion. Primary and Sportsman sequences are well within the capabilities of RV aircraft and pilots. I invite you all to come join the IAC/RV Working Group and join the discussion. HERE is a link to the Group. Or send me a private message with your email address and I'll send you an invitation personally.

Default Canopy release for RV-6/7

All,

This topic has just come up in the IAC/RV Working Group. I'm looking for information on the expense in time and money to install a canopy release mechanism for the RV-6/7 sliders. We have a number of pilots who would be excluded from IAC competition if they were not equipped with such a mechanism. Any help appreciated.
