14. Wind speed

The maximum permitted wind speed, will be 7 m/s.

15. Take-off rules

Pilots will be launched at timed intervals to ensure adequate separation during final approach and landing, according to the conditions. The launch interval shall be 1.5 minutes between pilots adjusted by the Launch Marshal.

Pilots must fly in the drawn flying order unless they have prior permission from the Launch Marshal.

Tardiness (absence) of the pilot in the established flying order to the starting line will be liable to a maximum score penalty in this attempt.

If a Pilot is failed to take-off three times by his own fault, he will be liable to a maximum score penalty in lieu of their score for that round.

The next two Pilots should be completely ready for a take-off with the same time as the prior Pilot, so in case of false start they can replace him.

16. Flying / Last approach

No acrobacy is allowed during the flight even if it is for quick reduction of the altitude.

The pilot is deemed to have started the final approach when, having turned to face the target, the Event Judge considers that the pilot has made his final commitment to making an approach to the target and is not expectingto have to make any significant changes of direction. Any further manoeuvres undertaken by the pilot from this position will not detract from the above factor.

The official signal for pilots in the air to fly away from the target for safety reasons is that a person or persons on the target will clearly wave a red signal flag.

17. Re-launch

A pilotmay only request a re-launch following the disputed flight by applying to the Event Judge at the target before signing for his score. The pilot must register his request for re-launch with the Recording Judge before communicating with any other person (with the exception of the Chief and Event Judges).

The wind speed exceeds the specified limit during the time of 30 seconds before the pilot lands. The pilot will be automatically offered a re-launch. The pilot may choose to accept the score achieved or accept a re-launch. The pilot must make a decision immediately.

The target is obscured during a pilot’s final approach and the pilot does not attempt to land on the target. The pilot may indicate (point or call out) the obstruction as he lands.

The judges are unable to agree an accurate score for any reason.

The pilot changes his flight plans for safety, and does not then attempt to land on the target.

If there is any significant external distraction which demonstrably affects the pilot’s target approach.

At the Judges’ discretion on the grounds of a technical problem or abnormal conditions. This may be a failure with equipment (e.g. a broken steering line or a big tuck during the flight) which is not a result of the pilot’s poor preflight check, or massive sink such that a pilot is unable to reach the target or arrives with insufficient height to make a reasonable final approach. A re-launch may be authorised provided that the pilot does not attempt to fly to the target and/or he makes a signal that must be described in the Local Regulations.

18. Complaints and Protests

Complaint can be delivered orally to the Event Director and/or Chief Judge.
Decision to appeal shall be taken by a Pilot individually immediately after landing and before discussing a problem with others.
If a protestor is not satisfied by the result, he can give his protest in written form to Event Director. The protest shall be given in 2 hours after informing about the results of oral protest.
