Flytec Race & Rally 2015

The Flytec Race & Rally will start at Quest Air in Groveland, Florida and head (hopefully) north from May 17th through May 23rd, 2015. Bobby Bailey, Jim Prahl, April Mackin and other dragonfly tugs will follow us along course, chasing the best weather conditions and hopefully making stops at our favorite airfields in Live Oak, Moultrie, Americus and Vidalia (remember Yumion to Onion! ;-).

Remember, this is an aerotow launch competition, therefore it is absolutely necessary that you are thoroughly skilled at aerotowing and capable of aerotowing the glider you plan to fly in competition conditions. An international competition is no place to learn how to aerotow. If you are unknown to the organizer/meet director, you may be asked for proof of your aerotow expertise when you pre-register. During the competition, the meet director/safety director reserves the right to remove (without refund) any pilot who does not demonstrate appropriate aerotowing skills.

    Refund Policy

    If you cancel before April 17th there is a $100 cancellation fee. After April 17th there is no refund. There are no exceptions so please be certain you can attend before you register.

    Fees

    Entry Fees: The early entry fee for the competition is $300 (does not include tow fees) and is required in full to complete your registration and to secure your entry. After January 15, the entry fee goes up to $325. Registration fees if paid after May 16th are $350 - meaning, if you would like to wait to pay entry fees until you arrive in Florida, you will be contributing $25 to Steve's BBQ fund.....and it is greatly appreciated ;-) Aerotow fees: will be announced one month before the start of the meet, but we expect they will be about $350 -$375 depending on fuel costs and other factors.
