All pilots with fixed wing, propeller driven aircraft are eligible to take part. Whether you fly a turbine powered dream machine or a Cessna 182, there is a class for you. A second "Short" race course is provided for aircraft with a limited range and/or a top speed of less than 100mph. There is a new SUPERSPORT class for experimentals and a Rally class that lets a pilot predict his speed and fly the course at any power setting.
To date, twelve classes have entries. The RV Blue class promises some great competition among the RV6s. Dr. Henry Punzi has a new Mooney M20J Missile and will be giving the Bonanzas some real competition in Factory 1RG class. Norm and Helen Biron are looking for competition for their Glastar in Experimental Formula Blue FX. Mike Patey has a new engine and a new class for his Lancair Legacy. All are excited to see what this team will do. A current list of entries is available at WHO"S IN.
