Heads Up Displays added

In response to a query about installation of any Heads Up Display to aircraft not normally so-equipped, these are generally considered to be changes to the aircraft instrumentation and thus are allowed under the General Rules except if this instrument provides additional information such as 'synthet...

Re: RTW 2018 Question re "Rookies"

Pat, Special Rule 12 (New Pilots) describes the situation. Specifically, it says: "A new pilot is one who has not yet been an official pilot of record or who is returning to the race after an absence of at least two years." It focuses on participation in the Race and is not 'team specific'. As such,...

Tracking event displayed?

Eamonn, We often have cases where a pilot changes his "event" selection - eg. to go to a 'practice' event for testing and then forgets to change back to the 'Race' event, or the other way round (forgets to switch out of the 'race' event when not flying a competitive leg). Could the "active" event be...

Re: Question RE aircraft for the Rookie legs

In a word.. yes. More words.. it must be a model of a CIVILIAN helicopter (1 or 2 engines) - that's not a Ka-50 in civilian paint!, and it must have a Vne of less than 200 KIAS. Not the sort of thing a rookie would normally fly, but... The concept is that these legs can be easily flown by someone ne...

This is a relatively minor point, but may become important for the avoidance of documentation penalties. It's wonderful to know the Rules are read in detail and we regret that they may induce paranoia, but feel safe - we don't try to create 'gotchas'. Nor would we assess a penalty for a minor misun...
