A neutral re-post looking for answers on legal scale planes
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
This is reposted (with apologies to Jason) as he saw fit to lock the previous one! I hopefully have removed anything that could be remotely considered inflammatory from my comments, (including a response to the "grow up" comment) and left only factual comments with requests for answers.
Many people (including the president of the RCCA) have posted that the three planes I have mentioned meet these rules, but we do recognise that they do not meet them next year. That is the critical difference. So we have a year to decide if we want to build aircraft that meet the new rules. So be it, we can handle that.
We also understand the mid-air rule is in place for 2004, we disagreed with it but it was approved. Done deal, dead issue.
So what do we have to do here? Show up with currently legal aircraft at the event and then file a protest when we are not allowed to fly? That appears to be our only recourse at present.
And you are telling me that a protest will go no-where when the aircraft in question meet the rules and the basis for the protest is 100% legitimate!! That really does not reflect well on the processes that are in place that are supposed to preserve the integrity of the rules.
It appears that MAAC is knowingly and consciously sanctioning an event that violates their own existing rules. Surely some-one up there realises this is plain wrong wrong wrong!
This also appears to be a direct contradiction of your statement that "The majority of the committee supports the chairs and the rules". If the committee supported the rules actually in force, this would not be an issue and the Oakville CD would have been told to follow them.
That is the bottom line! We respect the rules in place and will abide by the ones that apply at the time. We expect the event CD to do the same. If that happens then this discussion becomes irrelevant.
Submitted respectfully for serious and thorough consideration. If I am wrong, please identify my misunderstanding.

A NEUTRAL REPOST
It would seem to me that this issue is a MAAC issue and must go through the Commitee and Zone directors.Jason's closing of the last post on this issue basically told you that.Please go chat with those folks but don't do it here.YOU KNOW THE RULES FOR THIS SITE. NOW GO!!!

As much as I wish this could lead to a positive and constructive conversation, it has been proven time and again it won't.
Please stop posting about combat/MAAC rules.
