Work at the Races
Races like these are not completely automated. There are 9 positions that need to be filled in order for these races to work. If you like to be a part of working these races, please contact Ben McBride (email). Below are the positions and descriptions.
|The Starter controls the flight line, takeoff and landing orders, preps racers for the upcoming heat and judges for any unsafe maneuvers by pilots or crew.|
|Operates the “Race Command” software. This software manages the matrix, collects timing data, and scores the event.|
|Informs everyone via the PA system of the upcoming heats, results, and any other information that needs to be know at the event. (Also adds a little color commentary).|
|Tracks assigned aircraft before, during and after the heat. Timer will operate a timing lane for the “Race Command” software. Also judges for any unsafe maneuvers by the assign pilot.|
