Raven Competition '09 › rules

1. Competition classes

Newbies will fly with gliders in 15m FAI class (ASW27, Ventus2, LS6), skilled pilots same task together with newbies in Standard class (ASW28, Discus2, LS8). Splitting to groups of newbies/skilled pilots is matter of pride - we hope skilled guys you don't will fly with 15m as well. So please skilled pilots (yes, we know you all for sure), take STANDARD class planes. In case that all class will be allowed on tasks, scored will be only pilots flying 15m/Standard. Other clasess (18m/Open/School/Acro) scored with 0 point - you sure that you want to fly only for fun? It's your choice...
