Garth, The problem is cost. Currently the CAR-ACF is revenue neutral. We can't give it away and take a loss. See our Quandary? The ONLY way we can get there is build membership IMO. Unfortunately, we are not in a position to lose money on route. It took forever to get a policy. We have grown a littl...

Glad you understand Layne. The average flier is unaware of how precarious our hobby is from a regulatory point of view. Managing it in a cautious manner has brought massive benefits to us. There is no doubt in the view of the powers that be that this is the best way to proceed. BTW We are the CAR-AC...

I spoke to Pierre today and here is the CAR-ACF position. The CAR-ACF does not participate in this type of event. CAR certification may not be used as it is contingent on it being a CAR-ACF authorized event. The liability is simply too great. Any participation can only be outside of the CAR-ACF. By ...

The first thing you need is to contact the CAR-ACF president. A CAR-ACF RSO will be required.

All the points being raised here should be put to the president and an RSO.

I suggest contacting Pierre.
