Flying Season 2013
Some turbine powered model airplanes
exceed 55 pounds fueled and ready to fly. There are
specific AMA rules and necessary documents that apply to
these models that must be filed with the AMA prior to
flight. It is the pilot / owner’s responsibility to comply
with LTME-1 (Large Turbine Model Aircraft that weight
between 55 and 77.2 pounds), and LTMA-2 (Large Turbine Model
Aircraft that weighs between 77.2 and 100 pounds).
While you are on the AMA site, refresh your knowledge and compliance with the Turbine Waiver rules Doc. 510-A.
BVMJets.com/Safety Issues has
multiple articles relating to the safe operation of model
turbine jets dating back to August 2000.
