Sounds like the numbers are getting out of hand... why the need for such serious changes involving helis? Whats going to happen is all of the heli guys will leave for another place. Perhaps that's what the airplane guys want.

On the 15 minute idea, we tried this way back when I organized the indoor at the soccer dome. It simply didn't work out because everyone trys to exceed the limits. And we even had a large score board timer that let off a siren at the end. It was just to much work trying to boss everyone around.

As many of nights you guys have access to the facility you might also consider having ALL heli or ALL airplane nights.
We've had a heli end up getting into the pits twice this year. Couple that with the increased attendence (averaging 29 pilots per fly-in) and that equals big time potential disaster. It's not worth the risk. Also, we have 10 - 12 guys that fly helis and only two pilots perform 3D. I have received overwhelimg support for the implementation of this rule, including support from the majority of the heli pilots, as well.

Regarding the flying time intervals...if exceedence of time limits are abused excessively and it becomes to much work bossing everyone around as you stated, then I will start asking guys to leave the fly-in. It's that simple. Anyway, I'm not trying to be an ass, but there needs to be a little order restored to our fly-ins. The last couple of fly-ins has been a little crazy. I'm confident it will all work out in the long run.

Yes, I may have to ask the guys what they think about having an airplane-only and heli-only fly-ins.

I can tell you from experience your position is not an easy one. The problem is there isn't anywhere to hide from those flying. I wish the sports zone would have still been an option as it was perfect for indoor fun. The whole field was surrounded by a net and yes people hit it. Good luck up there finding a happy median. Im glad its still 80 degrees outside here so no need for indoor action.

Due to warm weather being upon us, the two remaining indoor fly-ins are cancelled. The next indoor season will begin around mid-October 2012 and run through the end of February 2013. I will send out an email in September with details/schedule for the next indoor season. Thanks again for participating in and making this another successful indoor flying season.
