No. of Rounds/Schedules

The contest will be ranked using 4 preliminary flights of P-19 and 2 final flights on F-19 for the top 50% of pilots (but not more than 15 pilots) from the preliminary ranking.

 

The scores for all rounds will be computed using the Tarasov-Bauer-Long (TBL) statistical averaging scoring system.

 

All scores will be normalised for each round when complete as per the FAI rules.

 

In the advent of adverse weather conditions where no further flying will be possible the preliminary classification will be determined as follows:-

  • One round complete for all competitors. 1 round to count.

  • Two rounds complete for all competitors. Best round to count.

  • Three rounds complete for all competitors. Best 2 rounds to coun

  • Four rounds complete for all competitors. Best 3 rounds to count.

 This will give the preliminary ranking. 

 

The top 50% of pilots (but not more than 15 pilots) will then fly two rounds of F-19.

 

If one complete round of F-19 is completed by each competitor, the total of the best three preliminary flights, normalised to 1000 points will count as one score plus the F-19 round (normalised to 1000 points) to count for the final classification.

 

If two complete rounds of F-10 are completed by each competitor, the total of the best three preliminary flights, normalised to 1000 points will count as one score, along with the two semi-final scores (normalised to 1000 points) to provide three scores, the best two to count for the final classification.
