Large Scale Aerobatics

Unread post by clivem » Tue Aug 14, 2018 9:06 am

I know this is not full size but thought it may be of interest to some.
We fly Large Scale Aerobatics - by definition these are Large Scale replicas of full size aerobatic planes - mostly in the 35% to 40% scale region. we fly the very same types of schedules using the same Aresti system as in Full size aerobatics.
we have 5 classes - BASIC, SPORTSMANS, INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED and UNLIMITED

Yesterday saw the 3rd round of the KZN Large Scale Aerobatics League held at MMAC club just outside Pietermaritzburg.
A fantastic day with very little wind and temperatures reaching 30 deg C. With an entry of 17 pilots we had a full day of flying!! Great to see the numbers of keen pilots attending these competitions. there is a lot of behind the scenes work in organising these days and the support makes it all worthwhile.

well done to all pilots and a HUGE thanks to all the helpers and judges!!
Johan and the MMAC club for the use of their facilities for the day
Brad and the ladies - organising, bringing the food and equipment, and cooking the breakfasts
Lloyd - for the braai charcoal
Ken - organising, flight line director and registrations etc on the day
Ian - handling our LSA finances
Caitlin - sorting out score sheets
Clive - preparing, organising and printing score sheets
Sheryl - entering the scoring all day, so we had the results within minutes of the last pilot landing =D>
Bruce Clarke and and Mike Stark- our judges who sat all day watching and scoring - many thanks!
The LSA committee who make sure we have everything in order not only for local events, but Nationals too, and the interest of growing the sport at heart

I am very grateful to the team above ( hope i have not missed anyone out) without them the events would just not be the same - thanks all!!

pics - thanks to Michael Richards

Would be great to do some combined events. Ladysmith is closest for us I would think.
