To summarize competition rules - A “target” line will be
marked on the runway a safe distance from the runway end and foul lines will be marked 50 feet prior and 50
feet after the target line. Each competing pilot will be allowed only one approach and landing. Landings before
the first foul line or beyond the second foul line will not be measured and will result in disqualification.
Competition will not be held if the visibility is less than 2 miles and/or the ceiling is less than 1,500
The landing contest will take place at the Grand Forks International Airport
(KGFK) and will begin at approximately 8:00 am. Briefings will be ongoing throughout the day. There will
be a pancake breakfast and lunch on the grill.
If you want to use our airplane we will be renting it for a
flat $40 for an attempt. No check out required, contact us for more information. If you
use any other airplane, you will compete for FREE!
