Flying Site Procedures


In all respects, safety is the dominant consideration for what we do.  As we conduct ourselves during the event we must keep safety as our primary effort.

  • ​As the "Pilot in Command" you are accepting responsibility for the aircraft, payload, and all events that occur during the course of the flight. You must always exercise sound judgment and decision-making, recognize and manage risks effectively, and maintain situational awareness.
  • You will be facing south on the side of our paved east-west runway.   Our field boundaries are the top of the first gun-range berm to the east, and the first tree line to the west.  Please fly in a race-track pattern based upon the designated direction indicated by the air boss.
  • There are designated areas for starting engines prior to flight.  It is imperative that we use these starting areas exclusively.  Starting and/or running engines or motors in the pit area is strictly prohibited.
  • Should the need arise for you to test run your engine please see the air boss.  A location away from the pilot stations and spectators will be made available for this purpose.
  • Formation and group flights of like aircraft are encouraged.  Please let the flight line team know in advance of your intentions, and they will work your group into the sequence.
  • There will be six flight stations.  Although a maximum of six aircraft will be permitted to fly simultaneously, exceptions will be made for formations and gaggles.
