New Flightline For SEFF 2017
Welcome to SEFF and getting back to our roots. As promised we have returned the main runway back to strickly flying. At the East half of the runway we will have pure sport and park flyers. There is no limit to the size of the aircraft. On the West half of the runway we will have 3D, sport and park flyer with no limit to size. Facing East will be the FPV/Multi rotor area and north of that will be Heli area. We are setting the field up so that you walk out to a station and fly and have a great time. Please note the following rules:
- Make sure you know the flight pattern
- Announce "Take off" and "Landing" and if "on the runway"
- No flying over camping area or stations
- Have a good time
DLG may launch from any location except Heli.
We will be having "Special Gaggles" during the day, so listen to the annoucements in the morning.
Float flying will be before 9am and after 5pm.
All AMA safety codes will be observed during the event. AMA, MAAC or Park Pilot AMA License is accepted and mandatory for all pilots. This will be checked at registration, where pilot badges will be issued and required to be worn to fly at this event.
Katie's Soul Food will be set up in the "old" vendor mall and we will provide enough tables and chairs to seat 200 people. We are working with a couple of food trucks to come during the week to offer some variety. Also, Americus, just south of the field has plenty of places to eat.
Battery Charging Services
A 900 ahr charging station will be available to those who are flying into the event and do not have access to a source battery. This will be available to everyone and will be located at the SEFF Pilot Registration area.
RC Radio Management
- If you are still on 72MHz please notify staff so we can keep up with how many are on site. Most folks are now on 2.4GHz and this is not an issue.
