Sign-ups for the 2011 Albuquerque F5J World Challenge are now open at the following web site.

We will be using the same altitude limited (ALES) format we used last year. There is a link to the rules at the site as well. Sign up and come to Albuquerque for 2 great days of soaring.

Post 2 Has Pilot List


I added the Pilot List in Post 2. I will try to keep it up to date although I might not get to it again for about a week.

Is there a convenient place for RV parking near the flying site?

ASA Fall F5j


This year will be our second big F5j contest with altitude limiter chips. Last year this method of equalizing launch altitude worked well and seemed to be enjoyed by all. The grass is good at the sod farm and good weather is the rule in early September. Can't wait to fly this contest again.

Like last year, the club has extra altitude limiters that they will loan to any pilots who don't have them, correct?
