Thailand Precision Flying EFC Saturday 9 – 10 March 2013


Thailand Precision Flying EFC Saturday 9 – 10 March 2013

The 2rd Precision Flying in Pattaya

For E.F.C. 2013 we’ve invested, at huge expense, in 30 GPS data-loggers. These are about the size/weight of a small box-of-matches and they record your GPS fix every second of your flight. Therefore we will know exactly how close you get to each way point and, we’ll know the precise time you reached it. You will be handed your data-logger by a marshal immediately prior to starting your engine (already switched-on for you) and, you’ll hand it back to a marshal after shut-down (still switched-on!). Your file will then be downloaded by another marshal and your score will be calculated in a matter of seconds.
Therefore, at E.F.C. 2013 there will be no ground signals to identify although, like last year, you will be given photos of the ground features that are the way points.
