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.
