The YS Civil Aviation Server and PMNV Creations present an afternoon of action in the South with
The YSCAS Cross Country Race: Tennessee.
WHEN: September 28, 2014 at 1:00 PM Central Daylight Time (6:00 PM GMT)
WHAT IT IS: This is a race from Nashville to Halls, Tennessee.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Please preregister in a post below. Names of participants will be added to this post as they come in. Pilots will be given a number according to their entry order. That number will correspond to the number on their plane and the start position into which they spawn. Only pilots who preregistered by 11:30 PM CDT on Friday, 26 September 2014, will be sure to get a uniquely-numbered aircraft. Registration will continue up until the race begins.
FLIGHT PLAN: We will start by spawning on the numbered start positions at Nashville International Airport (KBNA). A countdown will be made by in-flight chat (3...2...1...GO!) and all pilots will take off on "GO!". The race will conclude in the Finish Box at Arnold Field in Halls. The first person to come to a full stop on their number will be the winner. The catch: Pilots will have to stop for fuel along the way. There are airports set up for refueling between Nashville and Halls: Humphreys County Airport, Henry County Airport, Carroll County Airport, and Beech River Regional Airport. These airports have been set up with fences to make force pilots to land on the runway and properly taxi to the fuel tank, then taxi back to the runway and take off.
AIRCRAFT INSTALLED: YSCAS Aircraft Pack Pilots will be flying the Piper Archers modified for this race. They have plugged fuel tanks to limit how much fuel they can carry, even at 100%, and have a range of about 30 miles short of the full distance from Nashville to Halls. They will not glide 30 miles, so plan to stop for fuel.
