I’m a little confused as to how XC flying would be something the club could be responsible for.
We don’t control the launches in the National Forest, and if a pilot is going XC, they’re not landing at AJX. If you’re going to count successful out and returns as XC, then how much deviation from a minimum distance course to the LZ constitutes an out and return?
I’d always considered the XC signoff to be of interest mostly to competition organizers.
Part 103 allows anybody to fly XC at any time, “qualified” or not.
