Default Test and Tune #2


Entry Level Racing
Test and Tune meets are not full events. They are organized practice sessions during open flying. We take control of the flight line for a set number of flights; then reopen the field for normal flying. Based on the goals of the day we may just run qualifying heats or simulate an entire race. This is a perfect time to practice the course, test new ideas on your plane, or try racing for the first time. It also allows us to gauge the participation for upcoming race events.
Test and Tune meets are free to all club members of the Pomona Valley Model Airplane Club (PVMAC). If you are not a member and would to fly at the meet you can purchase a day pass at the field (or join the club).
