2015 S.A. Championship Contest Information
P a g e | 6
E. Unknown figure submissions are to be submitted with the entry form and once
submitted they cannot be altered at any time.
F. Advanced and Unlimited pilots submitting a complete entry form with their
Unknown figure submissions prior to the entry close date will have figures selected
for the Unknowns.
G. The process for selection of the final Master Set of figures is as follows.
The order of pilots figure selection will be the order that their entry form is
received by the contest secretary. If more than one pilots' figures are
received simultaneously (e.g. within the same email submission) the
contest organisers will hold a draw to determine the order.
Figure selection will be done in rounds. In the first round, each pilot, in the
above order, will have their most preferred figure selected unless there is a
catalogue repetition with a previously selected figure, in which case that
pilot’s next preferred figure will be selected. If a pilot runs out of figures, the
process will continue without that pilot.
Once the first round of figure selection is completed and so long as there
are figure submissions from at least 3 pilots in the category, there will be
further rounds of the selection process. This process will continue until
sufficient figures have been selected for that Unknown, or there are no
more pilots' figures available.
If there are figure submissions from less than 3 pilots in a category then
only one round of figure selection will occur.
If more figures are needed for any Unknown then the remainder will be
created by the Chief Judge or their nominated delegate who must not be
entered as a competitor in the category.
H. The selection of figures will be repeated in the same manner for each Unknown.
4 Minute Free
A. The 4 Minute Free is open to Unlimited competitors.
B. If the wind is not too severe from the wrong direction, the judging line will be
immediately in front of the Windsock Lounge so that it presents well to the other
C. It will only be flown if there is time available following all the other scheduled flights.
D. The 4 Minute Free score does not count towards the category championship.
Bad Weather/Schedule Interruption
All Options will be considered by the Contest Jury if required.
The Chris Sperou South Australian Unlimited Aerobatic Perpetual Trophy is on
offer to the highest placed Unlimited competitor so long as there are at least 2
competitors in that category (otherwise Jesse gets to keep it for another year,
which he is keen to do either way).
There is a trophy on offer for the highest scoring competitor across all categories
that competes in an RV.
Plus the usual awards to 1
in each category…
In accordance with AAC Regulations, a first-time Graduate competitor with a
safety pilot is eligible for trophies and awards.
