We know that many of you have interests about many different aspects of Night Flying and what is or is not allowed via the AMA Safety Code. Understanding your interest, IRCHA made contact with the AMA Safety Committee in November of 2016 requesting some clarification as to Section B-Rule 8 of the Safety Code. As of now we have not received any clarification on Section B-Rule 8 of the Safety Code.

As we are approaching June we have decided to state the following concerning Night Flying at the 2017 IRCHA Jamboree:

IRCHA expects all pilots to follow the AMA Safety Code.

Light Towers Approved

We have had an update concerning Night Flying. We have received approval for Light Tower flying at the Jamboree from the AMA. There will be a few requirements: Two light towers are required. There will also be a requirement of glow sticks on skids and tail fin.

Here is what is needed by the IRCHA staff:

1. a Volunteer group that will take responsibility for running the light towers each night and turning off and locking them down. We are a small staff and tired by the time dark rolls around. These volunteers will also be responsible for flight line safety during Light Tower flying.

2. The cost for two light towers for the week will be 1000.00. They are 150.00 each per day so the week rate is the better deal. This is not a budgeted item for this year so there will have to be external funding. We can create a go fund me, or create an optional registration fee.

Some of us think the actual number of participants for Light Tower flying is much smaller than the total number of people who are willing to pay for the cost of towers. A go fund me, or required fee would help us to determine if this is something that should be budgeted for next year.

We have approval, the ball is now in the court of the people who want to fly under Light Towers.

*Before you ask, AMA specifically said that hand held Spot Lighting is prohibited by the AMA Safety Code.

So how do we get to the "go fund me" area for this?
