Provision of Sample Logger Files

Competitors are requested to provide sample files "as downloaded" from their logger(s) or flight recorder(s) prior to the competition. This enables us to verify the UIC and will enable us to score the first day promptly. The link below will open your email program with the required email address which is booker.scorer@gmail.com.

Airspace and Exemptions

There may be some airspace exemptions during the running of this competition. We are expecting to have exemptions relating to local nuclear facilities. These exemptions are subject to agreement and briefing on each competition day, and will be time constrained. See the local rules for full details. Don't forget, pilots must ensure that they do not go into airspace unauthorised. If you choose to use the file with "Exemptions Enabled" be especially aware when the exemptions are not in force.

If you use a moving map system (as well as a paper one) don't forget to ensure that settings manage airspace, parachute drop zones etc in a manner that ensures your compliance with the law as well as BGA and Local Rules.


Turnpoints

The standard BGA Turnpoint list will be used. Details to be provided six weeks prior to competition.
