All aircraft to be judged must register between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. The participant will acquire a “judge me” card to be placed on the prop.
There is no specific parking spot for aircraft to be judged, however the participants will need to convey where they are parked at the time of registration.
Judging starts at 11:00 a.m. and runs through completion.
Aircraft need not be flown to KBXM, but must hold a valid airworthiness certificate and be airworthy at the time of judging.
The categories to be judged are;
Experimental, by certificate - Kit built aircraft - Plans built aircraft
Vintage Aircraft - Any aircraft older than 1960. May be either Exp, or Certified.
Rotorcraft - Experimental helicopters, Gyrocopters, or rotorcraft that are not FAA Certified.
Ultralight - By certification, part 103.
Light sport - By certification, E-LSA only
In addition to the above categories, a total of three “Judges Choice” trophies may be awarded at the Judges discretion.

Airport Guide for Pilots (click to download the PDF file): Media:BXM_Airport_Guide.pdf
Please note that it is RIGHT traffic for runway 1R (One Right), and LEFT traffic for runway 19L (One Nine Left). Essentially, stay on the East side of the airport on the opposite side from the town of Brunswick and Bowdoin College.
There is no operating tower at the airport, so please use the CTAF frequency and self announce.
After landing, switch to 123.45 for ground ops and taxi to the North end of the airport. The event is taking place at the FBO (FlightLevel Aviation) which is on the East side of the airport on the North end.
Please note if you are in a helicopter, land at the Helipad and air-taxi to the helicopter parking space.
View of the airport from the north side facing south:

From the South
Get on I-295 North towards Brunswick.
Take exit 31 for ME-196 E toward Topsham/Brunswick.
Once on ME-196 E
Stay on 196 East for about 2.5 miles, then merge onto RT 1 North (on the left).
In approximately 2 miles, take the Cooks Corner exit (This is the first exit after you get onto RT 1).
Turn right onto ME-24 N/Bath Rd.
Go to the second traffic light and turn left onto the ex-Navy Base property. You will see a large airplane on display on your left after you make the turn.
