John and all:
         Nice questions and let me add another which will be coming up next year:  

         If/when the new Sport Pilot license and aircraft rules are finally official there will no requirement for an FAA medical certificate in order to legally fly a clipped wing cub, etc, of suitable horsepower.  Current IAC rules require an FAA medical for contest flights.  Will the IAC then allow Sport Pilots to fly in contests without a medical certificate?  This will certainly become an issue for some of us in/approaching the old buzzard category.

              Cheers,  Frank

  I'm a little confused (my normal existence) about the Aerobat placards and limitations.   If  I drove up to an IAC contest in my  shiny Cessna 150 Aerobat would I be able to fly Sportsman?  If I put an "Experimental" sticker on the door would I now be able to enter the contest in Sportsman?  If not why not?
