Thanks Devin I just might. Everyone says there's nothing like flying a competition sequence to sharpen up your sport flying.

Pete, you're welcome to fly one of my planes if you want.

I made it out to the Lakehurst Hangar today to fly with Dad. 40F and windy today....can't wait to fly at the heated no wind HEF venue

YouTube link for Sportsman video -
2012 Sportsman For HEF Geneva F3P (2 min 28 sec)


Couple notes -
Takeoff / landing will not be judged at HEF, so landing gear is not required. The takeoff/launch direction is not specified, and the sequence can be started from the left or the right.

The vertical line of the stall turn is offset slightly past center - the entire maneuver is centered, which includes the entry and exit radii.

The 1/2 reverse cuban eight is flown as a turnaround maneuver, and as such is does not start until after center.

Post any questions!

Regards,

Dave

And the Intermediate video -

2012 Intermediate For HEF Geneva F3P (2 min 39 sec)


Same notes for takeoff and landing apply as for Sportsman.

There is one maneuver errantly missing - #8, the Top Hat. My caller has been fired!

Dave

And FAI - AP13.

2012 FAI AP13 For HEF Geneva F3P (2 min 44 sec)


As with Sportsman and Intermediate, takeoff and landing will not be judged, but aircraft in AP13 must have functional landing gear / skids.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

The Sportsman video has a problem. It's stuck in processing on YouTube.

Should be fixed now. No idea why YouTube barfed on the first attempt.

Very nice flying. With about 100 years of practice, I might be able to fly that well.
