PPG: Tasks 1-2 Brief
PRECISION TAKE OFF AND LANDING PRECISION
To make a clean take off at the first attempt in the deck, and subsequently land as near as possible to a point.
The pilot is permitted four takeoff attempts, climbs to 100 meters overhead the target, cuts the engine before passing through a gate and tries to make a first touch as near as possible to the centre of a target consisting of a series of concentric circles.
Special rules :
The pilot scores 250 points for a clean take off at the first attempt, 170 for the second, 90 for the third, zero for the fourth.
The circuit to be flown will be detailed at briefing.The first touch of the ground by the pilot’s foot is the point from which the pilot’s score will be derived. A first touch on the line scores the higher score.
Contestants will be awarded a zero score for:
· The pilot or any part of the aircraft touching the ground outside the deck while undertaking the task.
Contestants will be awarded a zero landing score for:
· Engine not stopped before the gate.
· Gate not passed correctly.
· Falling over as a result of the landing.
Pilot score = (Bto + Bld)
Where: Bto = Takeoff points, Bld = Landing points
