    RE: SCALE JETS OVER RAYDON

    Hi Guys
    i fly jets at the Raydon site most of the time.
    As long as we fly in the designated area, which is more than big enough there are no problems.
    Hope to see you all on the day, and pray for good weather.
    Regards Steve

    RE: SCALE JETS OVER RAYDON

    Hi Slick 33,
    Some of you maybe aware that 3 years ago we were going to hold this event but we had a local complain about noise so we as a club decided not to go ahead with that meeting a similiar situation to Bickley jets which i understand they cancelled there's two years back now.
    The complaint we found out later was not to do with turbine jets, however, the reason we have gone for scale jets is that they are generally a lot quieter because most are fully ducted installations and they are not flown at 300mph so don't take up so much sky.
    It also gives the spectators more exciting aircraft to look at . Our last failed attempt had about 30 pilots booked in and we were hoping to have a good warm up meeting ready for the Bickley jets in June .Because we have a good grass field of about 300 metres any scale jet can be flown from here.I have even flown John Wright's Horten from here and we are picky were we fly this model.
    We had quite a few bickley members book in last time and we also like to reciporate there meeting too.Two good jets meetings reasonably local within a month of each other and of course perefect weather.
    As this is our first proper jet meeting we are going to restrict it to about 30 pilots so please book in as soon as possible so you get a place.
    I will try and get a few shots of the airfield and i will put up an aerial map of the site shortly.

    Quite a pointless and unhelpful post. It might actually mean more if the grammar and indeed spelling were correct

    Hi Dave your comment on scale only will certainly put people off,any scale model with a bifucated duct is much louder than any sport model,i could come along and bring my AT3 but it is a very loud model,how ever my bobcat is much quieter which one should i bring???? By the way your Rafell is a noisey model so do you class that as quite!!sorry but looks like i best go to West Raynam,pity as i would liked to have come along, Hope you all have a good day and hope that the weather is better than of late regards Keith

    I guess there will be other club members too who turn up on the day and maybe some guests who have not booked in.

    The weather forecast is playing ball at the moment it is 10 to 15mph winds sw which is straight down the runway lets hope it stays that way.
    Will be collecting trophies for the event tomorrow morning.

    RE: SCALE JETS OVER RAYDON

    just collected the trophies for sunday's event and have just checked the weather forecast and there seems no change with light winds straight down the runway.Although this is a scale event and i want to make sure those planes fly first so they can be judged for the trophies i will then open the meeting up to any sport jet that you may have with you. So if there are pilots that still want to come bare this in mind and e.mail me asap rcmman@aol.com .

    Hi Gregg,
    Thanks for the support and was sorry to see you had cancelled Bickley jets as i was hoping to get a few people from the raydon meetimg to come along.I think maybe next year just do it as a one day event and keep the overheads low.
    I will post some picures of the meeting on here asap.
