Alex has requested a test flight for Ryerson students at 2 pm, Saturday November 14.

We will post updates as we get closer to the day when we get an indication of the weather forecast.

Regardless of TEMAC membership status, please verify that anyone flying has MAAC insurance.

Thanks in advance.

Ryerson will NOT be at the field this Saturday.  They will attempt to be there on Sunday.  Will get it clarified tomorrow and post it.

Just got notification that RYERSON will not be test flying at Rogo Field either Saturday or Sunday.

They received permission to fly at Markham airport Saturday.  They have been doing all their test flying at Rogo Field but this test requires a larger area and the Stouffville Road is a barrier we cannot/will not move.

Their test is to geo-map a large area autonomously.  They could have used Rogo Field but it would have cramped their test.

Thank you to Markham airport for their support.

Bill,
re: your question....Nope.

re:"Ps we would also like to get Stouffville Road moved a few hundred yards north. "

Ask Santa.  Make sure the power wires move as well.  I am tired of them acting as a strainer.   ;D ;D

Please @Frank v B .  They are called "arresting cables" !!!

Andy,

Ask the people who have hit them. 
They don't arrest planes, they act more like a strainer, especially the #3 wire ;) ;)

Frank

ps: fact checking and for education purposes......from the internet "Modern carriers typically have three or four arresting cables laid across the landing area. All U.S. carriers in the Nimitz-class, along with Enterprise, have four wires, with the exception of USS Ronald Reagan and USS George H.W. Bush, which have only three."

On second thought, and upon review of forensic evidence in hand, I think @Frank v B is right.  (Ouch, that hurts!)  The TEMAC power lines clearly do act as strainers, not arresting cables.

"Arresting cables" would imply a controlled deceleration, with all parts of the aircraft remaining as a contiguous whole upon attaining zero velocity and zero ft AGL.  The photo series below clearly indicates the contrary, with a total absence of control during and following deceleration, providing proof positive of Frank's wisdom.  (Ouch, I just hit the same spot again!)

Here's to the ever sagely Flying Dutchman!!   8)
