Solo Flight Plan

(Download PDF version Here)

It will take about 15 minutes to go over the rules.
Plus the flight time. (There could be at least 2 flights)
You will review the Solo flight plan with the Instructor and preflight your aircraft.


Solo Flight Plan:
When taking off to the East keep flying to the East, use the fence to the East as point #1, at that point fly North and the fence 
to the North is point #2, at that point fly West and the fence to the West is point #3, at that point fly to the South and the North 
side of the runway is point #4. These 4 points mark the flying boundaries for the Solo Flight. For takeoff and landing the 
boundaries will be the same except for the South boundary which will be the South side of the runway.


Point #1 is at the South East corner of the field. 
Point #2 is at the North East corner of the field.
Point #3 is at the North WEST corner of the field. 
Point #4 is at the South WEST corner of the field.


Solo Flight: Take off and fly one circuit of the flight pattern at the altitude you want.
With a East to West wind, the pattern would be Takeoff East and fly to  points 1-2-3-4 
With a West to East wind, the pattern would be Takeoff West and fly to points 4-3-2-1


Tip: Maintain one altitude and fly to the points of the field boundaries (noted above) flying straight and level between each turn. 
After one circuit fly on to point #2 cross over center field and fly to point #4 to reverse the pattern for one circuit and fly on to point #3
cross over at center field and reverse the pattern back. Fly one circuit and land rolling out to the far end of the runway 
stopping at the X area of the runway. Then taxi back on the runway center line to the far pit entrance. Stop your aircraft, 
disconnect the battery and review the flight with the Instructor.


Study for the Solo Flight:
You can mark 4 points on a sheet of paper and study the flight path you will need to fly.
Below is the order of the points you will be flying.
For a East to West wind, the pattern would be Takeoff East and fly to points 1-2-3-4-1-2-4-3-2-1-4-3-1-2-3-4-Land and roll out to the X 
at the end of the runway.
For a West to East wind, the pattern would be Takeoff West and fly to points 4-3-2-1-4-3-1-2-3-4-1-2-4-3-2-1-Land and roll out to the X 
at the end of the runway.


Let me know if you have any questions.
