CIVL -Catagory 1
Pilots must meet the minimum requirements of USHGA H4 "advanced" rating or IPPI 5; as well as aerotow (AT), turbulence (TURB) and cross country (XC) sign offs or their non-US equivalents. Aerotow rating or evidence of extensive aerotowing experience behind trikes and/or Bailey/Moyes Dragonflies is a strict requirement. Pilots must have previously aerotowed the glider that they are flying in the competition, or one substantially similar, and be able to produce witnesses to that effect if questioned. Pilots who do not have the aerotow skills required to compete as determined by the meet organizer will not be allowed to compete in the competition. Pilots who misrepresent their aerotow experience will be ejected from the competition without refund.
It is the pilot's responsibility to check they are qualified to fly in the relevant Class. The WPRS can be consulted here. There is a separate list extracted from these rankings which will published as required and which will be updated monthly. For exemptions or queries contact Paula at the FAI.
