Ryan Kern: Mark(s), It might be good for out of town tandem pilots to know what sites are encompassed in this event. CLO, Oceanside, and Kiwanda? Thanks for getting the word out! Ryan
Silver Star Thursday road, snow, and flight report
Michael Coppock: Looking forward to flying with you there Steve. FYI, to those who don't know, the North "launch" is the large snow expanse on the ridge photo that starts at top of ridge, and crosses the ridge road about 1/2 way along the road.

Mark Sanzone: Unregistered pilots will NOT be launching at this event. No one goes off launch without a wrist band issued at registration. There is a double check process for this.

Mark Sanzone: Late breaking news! We will NOT be able to do tandems at the event. Our event insurance specifies no tandems or training at the event. FAA has cracked down on the exemptions so things are different this year. Sorry, Mark. PS. I will update the web site to clarify this. Sent from my iPad

FAA approves BNSF for BVLOS Track Inspections
Alan: Keep your eyes and ears open flying near and over railroad tracks - Cliffside and Bingen come to mind. BNSF Railway Company was given an FAA exemption to fly beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS - some guy locked in a little room) to do track inspections using 12.5-foot wingspan drones that can
