F3A Clarifications for P-15 and F-15
The Judging Committee has a few important clarifications to make for certain F3A maneuvers. We learned of these issues from the F3A Sub-committee chairman at the AOC F3A Competition in Thailand. We then did some research with our compatriots in Europe and the rest of the world. We decided it was very important to align ourselves with the rest of the FAI community in the world and to get this information out as quickly as possible so that all of our pilots and judges could digest this before our Nationals and Team Selection event in July.

Judge Certification Materials Now Available
The 2014 certification tests for AMA and F3A have been rewritten. If you were certified for AMA last year, your certification is valid until the end of 2015 and you do not have to take the AMA certification test. Since new rules and schedules were implemented for F3A, you should take the FAI (F3A) certification test again. The study material are available to download (for free) to all NSRCA members. If you are not a current NSRCA member then you will need to pay $5 to download the material and take the test. You must be logged into the website in order to download the material and take the tests, and you also must be logged on to sign up for the judging material by paying $5.
