Visitors to the site and free flying
In principle the organizer does not want to stop anyone
However, in the past we've had great trouble from free-fliers either seriously
obstructing competitors while they were trying to do something (like a
precision landing) or, once we has a chap who came with a paramotor / siren
which obviously derived most of its thrust by sonic waves. This did not endear us to our neighbours,
especially as he appeared to ignore signals to land for ages.
It is therefore a difficult decision.
The organizers have therefore decided the simplest solution is to incorporate a
bit of blackmail and say NO FREE FLYING - unless you have been part of the
organization, ie a marshal or something, for at least one of the championship
days. There are plenty of job opportunities, just find the Championship
Director when you arrive on site.
This will hopefully help us while educating each pilot a
bit about what's going on in the championship and what not to do, including:
getting in the way of any competitors, on the ground or in the air.
entering any of the local, or remote no-fly-zones.
causing a nuisance to our neighbours.
Because this is a public event, all pilots, whether competing or not, must have
3rd party insurance.
