This would be a great contest for novice fliers where they can team up with a more experience flier. This is just for fun and will introduce the novice flier to contest flying.

Contest Rules

•The object of the contest is to have two pilots fly one plane and both earn points for the flight.
•(Team option to fly one or two planes per round.)

•The tasks are five 8 minute rounds. Each in 10 minute window.

•The teams are comprised of a novice flier and a sportsman (experienced) flier. Or if there are no novice fliers then the teams can be drawn from a hat or self-selected.

• For a flight to count at least ½ of the total task time must be flown by one pilot and ½ of the time by the second pilot. Each pilot will score points for the total flight times. If the total flight is 7 minutes 30 seconds the point total for each pilot is 450 points. (420 + 30 = 450 + landing points.)

•Time starts once the plane comes off the high start / winch. No zoom launches. (Penalties to be determined by CD). Times are truncated. The flight time is entered in minutes and seconds only. The hundredths of second do not count. Example; 3:30:89 is 3: 30, or 3 minutes, 30 seconds. The max time will be 8:30 and the time will be entered as 8 minutes plus 30 seconds for 510 points. Both pilots would get the 510 points plus the landing points.

•While one pilot is flying the other pilot is timing. There is a grace period of 30 seconds for the exchange of equipment. Only 1- 30 second...Continue Reading

Tag Team HLG/DLG Concept
The object of the contest is to have two pilots fly one plane and both earn points for the flight.
The total flight points will be awarded to the team, and one half of the total points for each pilot.

A team consists of two pilots and one or two planes. Each pilot can fly his own plane or the team can elect to fly the one plane. The planes must conform to the HLG/DLG format. (Rudder, Elevator, Aileron). The wingspan shall be no more than 60 inches (1.5m). The teams are comprised of a novice flier and a sportsman (experienced) flier. Or if there are no novice fliers then the teams are drawn from a hat.
Tasks
The tasks are five 8-minute rounds. There is a working window of 10 minutes for each round. Each team must get both their 4minute flights in within the 10-minute window. Timing will stop on all airborne aircraft at the end of the working window. What ever that time is that is what they will get.
While one pilot is flying the other pilot is timing. There is a grace period of 60 seconds for the exchange of equipment. Only one-60 second allowance shall be used per round.
Scoring
Each pilot must attempt to fly ½ of the task time. For the round to count at least 1 pilot must fly. No one pilot can have more than 4 minutes on his portion of the flight. Each pilot will score points for his flight times.
Time starts once the plane leaves the pilot’s hand. Times are truncated and no rounding up. The flight time is entered in minutes and...Continue Reading
