Old Timer Day (not necessarily the pilot)
February 15 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
To commemorate TCMAC’s 50th anniversary, an Old Timer Day will be held.
Based on model aircraft designs that revolutionised free flight, three basic classifications exist:-
ANTIQUE — Aircraft which were designed, kitted, or published on or before December 31st 1938
OLD TIMER — Aircraft which were designed, kitted, or published on or before December 31st 1942
NOSTALGIA — Aircraft which were designed and published on or after January 1st 1943 and on or before December 31st 1956
Both “ANTIQUE” and “OLD TIMER” models are used to compete in the Old Timer Events.
Typical Old Timer events like Duration involve an enormous rush of adrenalin as the plane climbs vertically under power for 30 seconds (or for a limited fuel load in Texaco), then the engine cuts and the hunt for thermals begins. Last one down or closest to specific flight duration wins — depending on the competition.
More details of the how competitions are organised can be found through the Society of Antique Modellers Australia web site link below (under SAM600 Rules).
