  • F5J/Open Thermal Glider competition

    Location: VARMS Glider Field, Wantirna South

    Description:

    Dear All

    The RCGA has requested to hold a round of their F5J/Open Thermal comp on Sunday 24th Feb and the Committee has agreed.

    Normal flying ops on Sunday 24th will finish at midday and the RCGS comp will start at midday and finish at 5:30pm.
    No other flying will be possible from midday to 5:30pm on the day.

    A few winches will be set up on the field before midday but this won't interfere with flying ops.

    This is a one off to help out the RCGA because they haven't got their CASA height permit for their Diggers Rest field yet.

    A lot (most?) RCGA members are VARMS members. This is a soaring comp, we're a soaring club and we should support soaring in all its forms.
    It will give members a great opportunity to see how these comps work and what world championship standard flying and equipment looks like.
    The comp will provide interested members with an opportunity to participate.
