Would the Kent and Louisiana Tech advisors please contact the Chief Judge regarding the last heat. Due to impending duty time limitations and sunset, there is not enough time to complete the 4th round of Shorts. Standby for update on tomorrow’s plan of action.
Competitors, please report at 0800 and plans for Short Field Landings. Judges, please report at 0730 for breakfast and briefing. Plan to have props turning by 0830.
Advisors, we need you to input information about your aircraft for the landing events. Go to https://scoring.nifa.aero and log in. Select “Landings Scoring” and then select “2019 National SAFECON Landing Events.” On the page that loads, under the Advisors section, select “Landing Card Data.” Edit each heat and position that appears. Please start with the Power Off Event, as that is what we will be doing today.
See Erich Hess or Jared Testa after the landing briefing for assistance. Thank you!
We are in need of a 15 passenger van to help transport judges to and from the runway. If your school could lend us a van, please see the Chief or Associate Chief Judge
Contestants, please report at 0800. We would like to have props turning on Heat 1 by 0830. Judges, please report at 0730 for breakfast and a briefing.
Judges plan on a 0730 report time, students plan on a 0800 report time in the hangar.
We updated all of the event appointment calendars this morning. Only the event calendars have been updated, the practice sessions have not changed. The updates caused several appointments to be rescheduled by a few minutes, usually only 5 or 10 minutes. We did have to cancel a few appointments. All affected appointments have been emailed the changes. The appointment calendars are now visible on the Schedule page. If you cannot find a time slot that works, please visit the Schedule page to see if you can trade with another school. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
The POH has been removed from the preflight aircraft because the binder broke. We will replace it when we purchase a new binder for the contents. Please handle the documents with care as well. A picture of the documents is attached here and is posted on the Preflight page as well.
