PPG: Task 4 Brief
PRECISION CIRCUIT IN THE SHORTEST TIME
To strike a number of targets laid out in a given order in the shortest possible time and return to the deck.
9 targets 2m in height are laid out 50M apart in two arrays. The first array has 4 targets in a straight line, the second array has 4 targets in a slalom.
A further target (sock wind) is placed 50M behind target to serve as a pylon which must be flown round (by the body of the pilot) before target 9 is struck.
Special rules :
A valid strike on a target is one where the pilot or any part of the FLM has been clearly observed to touch it.
To count as a strike, the pylon, must be rounded.
A strike on target 1 starts the clock, a strike on target 9 stops the clock.
Pilots may have only one attempt at striking each target except for the first and last targets where three attempts at each are permitted.
Failure to strike the first or last target or touch the ground at any point between them: score zero.
Q = NQ3/SP and Pilot Score = 1000 * (Q/Qmax)
NQ = The number of targets struck by the pilot
Sp = The pilot's elapsed time in seconds between striking target 1 and target 10
