Rogers Center (Skydome)

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
... would be a great place to hold an R.C. massive flyin wouldn't it?

I have no idea what the cost is, according to the F.A.Q. on their site, the field is available for "4 hours of baseball".

If a MAAC sanctioned event, (charity possibly) could be arranged, I wonder how many pilots from Toronto / Ontario / Canada ... worldwide would be interested?

Re: Rogers Center (Skydome)

i would be there. with my air arm. all 5 planes. i think that would be a blast. stand at second base. and take off from home plate and fly towards the centerfield wall. maybe put a camera on the plane . and see what the ball would see. when it was hit over the fence..
with the doom close. there would be no wind. and be the best place to fly.
wonder how much it would cost to fly there
having fun with the air

That's probably the "baseball package" (~4hr price)

Actually it's more like $40K + catering / support services etc. (I actually emailed them )

That's for 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m (~16 hrs).

So ..

Let's say it costs $50K, and sponsors can be found for picking up half that ($25K).

$25,000 / $100 entry = 250 pilots

The entry fee would cover -

- 10 minute free flight
- 10 minute competition flight
- entry into a prize draw
- % donation to charity

If we count on ~15 hrs of flight time, that's 15 x 60 = 900 minutes available.

At 5 pilots at a time : ("standard MAAC" .. maybe could be increased due to area size .. etc ?), 250 / 5 = "50 pilot-sessions"

900 minutes / 50 "sessions" = 18 minutes each.

If more than 250 pilots are interested, the free flight time might be cut in half, and /or the competition segment would eliminate flyers from advancing to further rounds.

Or you could choose to either free fly or compete only, with possibly different fees for each.
