Central Valley RC Soaring Club is pleased to announce the 2019 CVRC F5J in Visalia contest at the premier soaring site in central California. Tim Johnson will be the CD for this event.
We are planning on completing qualifying rounds by 1:00PM on Sunday, followed by 3 flyoff rounds, and hope to finish up by 3:00PM, so people can get driving home.
Registration is now open, go to CVRC’s website: the link is on the bottom of the home page or go to RCSoaring’s contest page: Please fill out the form completely including AMA#. On the registration page under ‘Notes’ there is a “Rules and Processes” document. Please review, we will be waiving the no-restart FAI F5J rule.

Lots of water!


Please be aware our flying field in a peninsula in the middle of an 40 acre water recharge ponding basin. With the wet winter we are having the water district has flooded the basins around the field. It will probably remain this way thru early to mid summer. Bring your electric float planes for a little extra fun.

This F5J contest will waive the FAI no motor restart rule (with the penalty of no flight score), so re-evaluate your AMRT settings.

See you in 3 weeks!
