RFC AIR RALLY DETAILS June 20, 2015 This is a flight-planning and spotting exercise. It involves solving a number of clues on the ground as to the route to be flown.

Flying needs two or more people: the pilot and one or more observers. The pilot is responsible for flying the route safely (about 40 minutes in a C172) while the observer(s) answers a number of questions about objects on the ground. The observer…
