Safety Checks Before the Big Race

Kali and Robin arrived at the race start (KMDH) after a long, hot day of flying from Denver (KCFO). Their Cessna 172 had just completed a 100 hour inspection and oil change, and the team used the 7-hour flight to confirm that the aircraft was running smoothly and in race condition.

Kali and Robin arrived at the race start (KMDH) after a long, hot day of flying from Denver (KCFO). Their Cessna 172 had just completed a 100 hour inspection and oil change, and the team used the 7-hour flight to confirm that the aircraft was running smoothly and in race condition. 

The team stopped at Salina to have lunch with the Kansas Statue University team (Kali and Robin met in KSU’s flight program). After a final fuel stop in Warsaw, MO, Kali and Robin made it safely to Carbondale, IL, landing under a starlit sky. 

This morning the team completed their aircraft registration and safety check and their racer credentialing. Race safety briefings start Sunday, and the races takeoff on Tuesday morning at 0800 central.
