Please to register you on :                                                                                             


According to the text published in the Sporting Code 2019, rounds will be organized in the combination:
- Four rounds of P-Schedule with the three best counting plus two rounds of F-Schedule.
All competitors would fly 4 rounds of P-19. The top 15 pilots after preliminary ranking would fly 2 rounds of F-19.
The organizer preserves the right to adapt the number of pilots flying the F- Schedule according to the weather conditions.
The starting order will be drawn.


The scores for all rounds P-schedule and F-Schedule will be computed using the Tarasov-Bauer-Long (TBL) statistical averaging scoring system, then will be normalized by the new system taking in account the average of the top half of the preliminary ranking (1000 points awarded to the average score) Volume F3 Radio Control Aerobatics 2019    5.1.9.e.                                           
In the event of adverse weather conditions where no further flights possible, the preliminary classification will be determined as follows:
One round/flight completed by each competitor: round/flight to count.
Two rounds/flights completed by each competitor: best round/flight to count.
Three rounds/flights completed by each competitor: best two rounds/flights to count.
Four rounds/flights completed by each competitor: best three rounds/flights to count.


The best three rounds of P-Schedule count for the preliminary ranking.
When all preliminary rounds will be completed, then the top 15 competitors of this preliminary ranking will fly two rounds of F-19 Schedule.
The total of the best three preliminary flights (normalized by the new system taking in account the average of the top half of the preliminary ranking (1000 points awarded to the average score) would count as one score along with the two flyoff scores to provide three scores, the best two to count for classification. 
As the total of the three best preliminary flights is treated as a third score (round) it has to be normalized for the 15 finalists and not for all competitors of the Preliminary, to be comparable to the two normalized F-Schedule.
