Task Ideas For Competition
The best pilots can do the most amazing things with these craft and
competition brings it out. Their feats can be both fun-to-watch and fun-to-fly
while discerning true pilot skill. The next FAI World Air
Games hope to be such an event.
Roy Beisswinger, U.S. representative to the FAI, has asked for
suggestions on competition that would meet these goals. They should also
be easy to judge fairly with the fewest marshals and lend themselves to
electronic scoring whenever possible.
Here are some ideas for
possible future competitions. These have not been approved by anyone but
sould be done in local events. In all
maneuvers the pilot must not touch the ground with anything but the feet unless otherwise specified.
The actual rules will be included as soon as they're finalized.
The World Air Games was flown in 2009. A log was kept by Jeff Goin and
here along with the results.
