Final rules for the 2008 Qualifier to the 2009 World Air Games

Here are the WAG rules that are being used. They have been used already by the Germans and Italians so changes are impossible. One thing we were unable to get changed was the need to run two tasks simultaneously. We do, in fact, have to run it that way in order for this to be a valid qualifier.

Download PDF of rulebook for paramotors here. Ignore part 2 which does not apply to us.

As before, there are three tasks. Fortunately, one of them is the cloverleaf which many pilots are already familiar with, at least how its flown. The dimensions may be different so check out the graphic before setting up your own course.

Dual Running

All the tasks are flown against another pilot. Both pilots start on the launch deck when a flag is thrown and the first to complete gains a small advantage since his race mate is penalized 5 seconds. What constitutes the finish of a task varies from task to task.

Above scores are the result of two rounds of each task performed with the best of the two rounds counted towards final score. Below, the raw scores from all rounds are displayed with cumulative points from all recorded tasks. Lowest scores are best, and some scores carry the 5 second penalty for completing a task second in each round. To see how these scores are normalized for the National Rankings, see USPPA 2008 National Rankings.
