Red Barons Fun Fly and Pilots Challenge in Sacramento CA 3/5

Red Barons Pilots Challenge on March 5th

There will be four different events to compete in with a fixed wing aircraft. Points will be awarded for each event completed successfully with opportunity for bonus points. At the end of the day all points will be added up and prizes given to the top three pilots. Their will be open flying through the day if you whish not to compete in the competition.

Touch and go to spot landing. There will be two boxes taped on the runway, you must touch your landing gear (both wheels) in the first box popup off the runway and land in the second box on the same approach. (Landing gear must be in second box for points) 10 points for touching your landing gear in the first box and 15 points for landing in the second box. 10 Bonus points will be awarded if you complete a Roll in-between and land in the second box.

Flower Drop. You will attach a Dixie cup to your aircraft. In the cup we will place a small baggie of flower you must then fly over a card board box and drop it in. You will be given three attempts. 10 points awarded for each successful drop that land’s inside the box. Get all three in the box and get an extra 20 points.

Table Top Dancing. In this event your nerves will be tested. First you will take off from atop the table and then land on the table. You will receive 10 points for taking off successfully then be given one attempt at hovering over the table and touching your tale on the table top for 15 bonus points and last but not least 20 points for bringing your plane to a stop on the table for a successful landing.

Limbo. This one is simple, fly under the ribbon to make it to the next round. You will be given two attempts and each level. 10 points will be awarded to you each time you complete a round. 10 bonus points if you complete the height inverted for a total of 20 possible per round.
