This is a race for propeller driven aircraft.

You plane is a jet if I am not mistaken.

If enough jets express interest I will open a separate division for them,

But for the time being only propeller aircraft may enter.

OOC: I saw that rule after I posted, and have made an edit accordingly :awesome:
