The Navigation Heat Sheet is now posted on the E-Comm Desk and the Navigation Event Page. Please check the sheet for any issues and email the Associate Chief Judge if you find any problems ASAP. With the Navigation Heat Sheet now published, we will open the Appointment Calendars for the competition events on Friday, May 10 at 12 noon CDT.
Reminder that practice calendars are opening at 1200 Central Time today!
If you are arriving prior to Thursday, May 9th, Please advise ground control on arrival that you are here for “SAFECON” or “Competition.” They will then clear you to park near the terminal. Once situated, please work with the airport operation folks to secure parking until NIFA staff are on property and can help get everyone situated.
If you are arriving on Thursday, May 9th or later, again advise ground that you are here for “SAFECON” or “Competition” and they will clear you to the shutdown box. NIFA staff will then coordinate with airport personnel for parking.
Remember, Navigation aircraft submissions are due TONIGHT the 30th, at 11:59 PM Central. This is for both the aircraft information and whether you will be traditional or unlimited. If you do not submit a preference, you will be unlimited by default.

Thank you to Frasca and Redbird for their big contributions this year! Due to the lack of simulators at Wisconsin, both companies stepped up in a big way to provide us with new and exciting equipment for our competition.
Ground Trainer:Frasca is going to be providing a brand new Reconfigurable Training Device (RTD) that is also a brand new product for them! It will be configured for 6-pack operations. To read more about it, click on the link below:
CRM:Redbird is also providing one of their full motion simulators for our CRM event! The Redbird MCX will feature an enclosed two crew flight deck. To read more about the simulator, click the link below:
We are still working on building a scenario, and as such cannot provide any final configuration guidance at the moment. When we do know more about the configuration we will pass that along immediately.
Again, a big THANK YOU to our sponsors for providing these tools for us.
