New Committee Chairman
Judges Committee – DJ Molny – See Judges Program Report
Rules Committee – Barrett Hines – See Rules Program Report

*(If you were a current judge last year, you only need to pass this year’s R&C Exam in order to be current.)

The most salient rule changes for 2021:

  • Advanced Free Programs may have up to 14 figures (previously limit was 12 figures)
  • Safety Pilots may not communicate with the competitor nor manipulate the controls during the performance except as needed for safety, and any figure aided by the Safety Pilot will be zeroed. (new)
  • The crosswind limit for Primary and Sportsman is now 15 knots. (previously 20 knots)
  • The Contest Jury may authorize an optional break if the forecast high temperature will result in a density altitude of 5,000 feet or higher. (previously applied to airports with an elevation of 3,500 feet MSL or higher)
  • For figures with matching radii, the first radius sets the stand. (new)
  • Wind drift during a hammerhead pivot is not penalized. (re-instate a rule that was accidentally omitted in the 2020 rewrite)

Order of Flights

The new rule book specifies the flights shall be flown in this order:

Known Compulsory, Free Program and the Unknown Compulsory (20.1.2) Any changes to that order must be approved by the contest jury (not the CD) and posted in time to notify all personnel affected by the change. (20.1.4)

The liturgy that says the Known Compulsory flight is all the qualification flight has been eliminated from the 2021 rule book.
