    I love the stream, it allows those of us who can't make it an awesome view of the races.

    Done. I have told many potential fans about the streaming. I believe that it's a step towards putting fans in the stands.

    A few questions.

    -What group started this survey and for what purpose?
    -Will the data be made available for people to see?

    Another question could be, "Would you be willing to pay and how much would you pay for the live coverage, per day or for the whole event?"

    The largest Surfing contest in the world, called the Triple Crown of Surfing, 3 events with about a 2 week window for each event and each event needs about 5-6-7 full days for each event to determine the results, takes place on the North Shore of Oahu. Hawaii. It has been streamed live for about 10 years for free. Very few people watch surfing but somehow they are able to produce it for free.

    Live Airshow TV posted it off their Facebook, so it would be the same thing as last year I'm assuming?

    RARA needs to get current with producing an online event. Each race plane could have required multiple cameras and GPS units displaying speed, line on the course, bank, pitch, airspeed, RPM, G force. Similar to NASCAR.

    Cameras on top of each pylon, on the hills surrounding the track, helicopter in the sky...Similar to how the Americas Cup Sailboat Races in San Francisco were produced.

    I wonder if the main reason the Air Races are not streamed live is because they are concerned that this would lower their gate attendance income?

    That's a valid concern, but I don't think it would matter. This is what I think. I live in Oregon and I'm going for the experience. I can't imagine many saying I'm going to stay home and watch it on my computer or stream it to my big screen. Same for the local fan, they'll come for the experience. As a comparison NAScar fills the seats while broadcasting the race. Now, it maybe blacked out in the local area. That's something I don't know. If it is that may provide the answer if streaming has an impact.
