Q. I only have a few flights - can I come?
A. We want to make it clear that every experience level is welcome and we have no desire to make a lot of rules.
However, we expect it to be a very busy flight-line and pilots with less experience may at times find it very challenging and overwhelming.
While we don't have a minimum flight experience requirement, we do expect that, for safety, less experienced pilots limit their flight-line activities during busy times and coordinate all their activities with guidance from other, more experienced pilots. The community in this sport is very helpful and if you need assistance, let those around you know - you'll end up with a lot more friends than when you arrived!

Q. I'm planning on attending and would like a T-shirt but I won't be flying. The registration page is asking for the pilot name. What should I put in there?
A. Create the order including only the T-shirt(s) you want and simply put your name as the pilot. We just wanted to be clear that we would not be shipping any T-shirts.

Q. If I want to sleep in my trailer/car/blimp/etc. do have to pay the $20 camping fee?
A. No. The $20 fee is for connecting to the hookups and parking in the area reserved for campers. If you sleep on the property in a tent or any other transportable item without connecting to power or parking in the hookups area, the $10 fee will cover use of the property and facilities (restrooms and showers).
