Notice to ACFC Airmen
1. Observe maximum altitude in Charlie: Stay below 800ft
Never exceed 800ft AGL in our training airspace to ensure you stay clear of commercial airspace.
2. Power line hazard
There is an almost invisible power line across the lahar river. There are more of such power lines everywhere in Charlie. New power lines go up all the time. Never drop below 200 ft.
3. Flight plans
Don't forget to file a flight plan when you fly outside Charlie airspace. This includes flights to uncontrolled airstrips.
You now need to obtain an individual waiver from CAAP for every cross country flight.

Correct Engine Handling

Before flying: Do warm up the engine at 2000 rpm for 2 minutes and then at 2500 rpm until operating temperature is reached
Before switching the engine off: Do let the engine run at 3000 rpm for 2 minutes and then at 2000 rpm for a short period to dissipate heat build up.
