Default RE: Getting started in pylon?

Truth be told, many pylon racers have little experience other than flying pylon racers. It's a steep hill to climb, not much room at the top, but it's the climb that makes it worthwhile. I did actually have one guy racing before he could land.

Your local guys that race in your area are going to be happy to help you. Bring the airplane, engine, and support equipment. Try for a simple start box to carry the starter, plug lighter, transmitter, (maybe a tach) a couple of tools to tighten props and replace the glow plug. Bring a hardhat and hearing protector and the attitude that you are having fun and you are ready to go.
