You will need a Special Flight Authorization letter if you fly a homebuilt.

  **** ONE (your country) of the ABOVE is required to be ON BOARD the aircraft to be LEGAL ****

- Also note that Public Liability Insurance MUST be carried to fly in Canada
                                  - check minimum requirements !

    ( I <think> that $100,000 is minimum, BUT $1 Million is more reasonable !)

- Customs form 178 - Private Aircraft Enforcement System Arrival Report ..
MUST be filled in at time of clearing Customs ( NO charge ) .
 Download - or may be obtained at entry time. Customs REALLY like these to be filled in already when you arrive - otherwise, DELAYS can result ! ( You should have EXTRA forms
ready in case we decide to return to Canada on the return trip, and re-enter the USA closer
to home. )      D/L & print from:     http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/toolbox/forms/ 

- Customs MUST be telephoned at least 2 hours BEFORE arrival - ADCUS on flight
  plans is NOT enough !! 
              ( We will try to call ONCE, for the whole group, IF we are ALL together ! )

- A Flight Plan MUST be filed to cross the border (at most airports ...)
(IF we all fly together, we can file ONE plan for a "flight of 20" - OR, different groups of
 similar speeds might file as "flight of 6",  "1, plus 3",  etc. .... )

A transponder is required for crossing the border (at most airports ...)
   - OR - a "No Transponder Waiver"  (Requests must be faxed at least 7 days early !)
- Web address for downloading TSA WAIVER REQUEST FORM -

   This page also has information about the current NOTAM.

- Ramble Name Tags, and Ramble 2007 Buttons will be filled in & given out
   before leaving Brampton, or enroute, for those joining us along the way.
