Well Coolen has landing gear for his Yak again, so the final stage of the 2014 Scale Aerobatic year is indeed slated for this Saturday, August 30/14 at AVIA. As usual we will fly Basic, Sportsman and Intermediate, hoping to complete 4 rounds in the day.
Flying will start as close to 9:00AM as we can make it.
A landing fee of $10.00 per flier will help with printer and paper costs, and the club will have food available on site.
For information contact me at s.mcinnis@ns.sympatico.ca or call me at home 902 466-3555.
There are a few rivalries that have to be sorted out for the year, like the great Sinnis/Notely Challenge, so lets all get there...

To immaculately prepared runways and pits (courtesy of a lot of hard work by Bruce and Don MacPhee),  coupled with clear skies and almost no wind early on, the fliers arrived early Saturday morning for the final Atlantic Lite Scale Aerobatic contest of the 2014 year.

Overall, there were 12 pilots flying in the  contest. They were: , Al Coolen, Ben Lann, Brandon Smith, Chris Garrett, Dayle Smith, Grant Beaver, Jared Ernst, Mike Notley, Paul Sinnis, Scott MacKenzie and Todd Fowler. These pilots flew a grand total of 192 judged sequences.

There were 3 pilots in Basic, and  Jared Ernst won this  class - way to go Jared!!!. The winning order was: (1) Jared Ernst, (2) Scott MacKenzie and (3) Dayle Smith. They flew 6 known sequences (3 rounds). The scores ranged from a low of 3,587 to a high of 4,000 (a range of 413 points). This was only the second contest for Jared and Scott, and it looks like they had fun - I think we’ll see them back again.

With  3 pilots in Basic, Chris Garrett took home the honours this time round.  The winning order was: (1) Chris Garrett, (2) Brandon Smith and (3) Todd Fowler. They flew 6 known sequences (3 rounds). The scores ranged from a low of 3,247.9 to a high of 3,992.2 (a range of 744.3 points). The tightest competition of the contest was for 1st place in this class, with only 9.9 points difference between Chris Garrett and Brandon Smith. To clarify, 9.9 points is about a hiccup in any one manouver!! Well done guys.


With 5 pilots in Intermediate,  Ben Lann took the laurels - so much for who ever showed him how end points worked!  The winning order was: (1) Ben Lann, (2) Paul Sinnis, (3) Mike Notley, (4) Al Coolen and (5) Grant Beaver. They flew 6 known sequences (3 rounds). The scores ranged from a low of 3,555.8 to a high of 3,993.1 (a range of 437.3 points).

Throughout the day Al Coolen kept the fliers on their toes, so there was usually one flier starting his engine as another was landing. After the noon break, burgers, dogs and sausages prepared by AVIA members, the wind started to come up, so the final round was a bit of a challenge for the fliers. But there were no "issues or events", no heat strokes. Over all a super day.
