The no sparkies and 7000í limit arenít a factor for me, I donít plan on flying either that high or those motors but it could be an issue for others - especially the altitude limit. Iíd say theyíll have to get a higher waiver than that for a successful NSL. Still going to look at making the trip.



They must have just changed that field info (since that page and a couple others weren't available when I checked last night). Their info talked about the Rembert Field until recently. The limits I talked about probably don't apply to this new field.

7000' AGL limit seems awfully weak.
I guess keep 'em Big, Draggy, and Heavy.

Not sure but being five miles away and in line of the runways at Shaw AFB might affect that.

At least it's not like NARAM 33 where we were limited to 1700' because we were on the approach path to O'Hare, 12 miles away.

A 1700" AGL ceiling is just plain worthless.

Thanks for the info. Too bad Mr. Temper Tantrum got his way.
