Wojtek Domański, Polish alternate delegate
Tasks fall into Three Categories:
A Flight planning, navigation estimated time and speed. No fuel limitation.
B Fuel economy, speed range, duration. Fuel limited to maximum 15 kg for aircraft flown solo and 22 kg for aircraft flown with two people.
The proportion of each task to be used is stated in S10, 4.29.3
Any task may be set more than once, either identically or with variations.
Distances should be as long as possible referring to the recommended still air range of the competing aircraft stated in S10 4.17.7.
In any task requiring pre-declaration of speed or elapsed time the Director may set up hidden gates through which the pilot would fly if on the correct flight path. Pilots failing to be checked through such gates or who are observed flying a devious path to adjust timing/speed errors may be penalised. No information will be given at briefing on the existence or whereabouts of hidden gates, or the method by which they are controlled.
The Director may set a time period for completion of a task in addition to the last landing time.
Inflatable pylons have already been used in various competitions. It is good to declare them officially valid, and to standardize their size.
