3.B6 Cat's Cradle navigation
[Based on exisiting economy tasks, but adapted to the proposed new fuelling procedures - this proposal is dependant on the acceptance of Proposal p12]
This task is for use in tasks based on weight of fuel used in flight.
Fly around as many given waypoints as possible whilst achieving the best possible fuel consumption (litres/hour).
Time limit (for instance 2 hours) with penalties for being late (for instance 50%).
The task either scores on the number of waypoints visited or the distance flown.
500 points for the distance part.
500 points for the economy part.
Pilots can carry as much fuel as they wish.
Time starts from launch (or start gate) and ends on landing (or finish gate).
Penalty for landing outside field (100%)
Penalty for landing outside deck (50% on economy part)
( 500 x NBp / Nbmax ) + ( 500 x FCmin / FCp )
NBp = The number of waypoints a pilot collects in the task (or the distance flown)
NBmax = The maximum number of waypoints scored or (maximum distance flown)
FCp = The fuel consumption of a pilot (litres/hour)
FCmin = Best fuel consumption
