Thursday's weather is not going to cooperate, between rain early morning and high winds for the rest of the day there will not be any flying.
Friday and Sunday Morning is looking great, Saturday is ok with low winds and a slight chance of rain.










Grass is cut for the pit area

I just finished this Boomerang Sprint V1 and was looking forward to flying it at Titusville. I have three flights on it and it flies great. It is powered with a Jet Cat P-80SE uses Robart #630 retracts and Robart trailing link struts. I use a Futaba T14SG transmitter on 2.4 Gig...

Trying to decide whether to come Friday with sunshine and an 11mph crosswind or Saturday with chance of rain in the afternoon and winds mostly down the runway. Only staying one day...

Hi Matt,

Your referring to the scratch built FJ-1 Fury? I have a second version because I crashed the first one. Not a fault of the plane, but my fault. It flew so well, I had to build a new one. I have about 10 flights on the new one. The weather here in the North East had been wet a lot lately. Haven't had a chance to get much flying done.

Titusville (6H1) is in class G. I've asked if there are any waivers, authorizations, etc. in writing from the FAA to exceed the limit set forth in 49 USC 44809(a)(6)? I'm hopeful to get a definitive answer here, lest I reach out directly to the FAA and ask them the question. Have about an hour for answer.

I got tired of waiting. I reached out to the FAA and it's my understanding the club and the airport management have been "refreshed" on the requirement to remain below 400 AGL. The NOTAM will be reissued and the FAA assured me they will be monitoring compliance.

Hey Mark come on over, we had some great flights today later in the afternoon when the wing finally came down, the weather should be great tomorrow.
